Making community involvement a corporate value
NAV CANADA knows the importance of community. The Company strives to be a good neighbour, wherever its people work, and encourages and supports its employees in their community activities.
NAV CANADA people donate thousands of hours – and hundreds of thousands of dollars – each year to support their local communities. The Company encourages this community involvement through a program that matches employee contributions to a variety of local, national and international causes.
For example, employees rallied to help Haiti following the devastating earthquake there in 2010. They showed the same spirit in donating tens of thousands in relief funds for victims of Japan’s catastrophic earthquake and tsunami, as well as the drought in East Africa.
Closer to home, the Company and its employees contribute hundreds of thousands each year to support causes such as the United Way and the Movember campaign across Canada, as well as local initiatives from the Ottawa Hospital Foundation to the “Be My Hero” campaign for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Winnipeg, the Défi-Vélo in Quebec, and the Terry Fox Run in Yellowknife and other sites.
