How Quadra supports charitable organizations across Canada
Quadra’s Regional Initiatives
In addition to corporate donations, each Quadra facility has a committee that is empowered to make donations locally which will benefit the charitable organizations in their region. Regional initiatives are conscious decisions carried out by each location’s Donations Committee in an effort to bring significant changes to targeted causes in communities across the country, engage employees, and promote good citizenship. Quadra’s corporate donations mainly concentrate on causes which aid in health, education, well-being and economic empowerment. Overall Quadra supported a total of 40 charitable donations across Canada in 2015.

The Burlington facility has been sponsoring Halton Women’s Place for several years, and is proud to be a “Safe Shelter Sponsor”. Many Burlington employees also dedicate their own time to volunteer at the shelter, and participate in events and fundraisers benefiting the shelter. Halton Women’s Place is a safe house which provides assistance to women and children who are victims of abuse.

The Alberta team also supports the Multiple Sclerosis walk and the Uncles and Aunts at Large, a mentor program for children. Quadra’s Calgary branch supports the Calgary Mavericks Foundation, a group of 25 local businessmen which fundraises for Calgary area children’s agencies.
