Involvement

Giving back to the community is important to our clients, and it comes naturally to us. We are involved in several causes that give back directly to our community. Our goal is to make a positive impact on individuals, families, communities and the world through thoughtful acts of compassion. Below you will find some of the causes and organizations we are most passionate about and are actively involved with.

The United Way: United Way is a federated network of over 100 local United Way offices, each registered as its own non-profit organization and governed by an independent volunteer-led local Board of Directors. Each United Way works locally to raise funds and invest in improving lives in its community.

WBYO ensures that local children have opportunities to learn and grow in an atmosphere where their basic emotional, social and educational needs are met and supported by positive role models.

 

Winnipeg Art Gallery: The WAG was established in 1912 when a group of Winnipeg businessmen, recognizing "the civilizing effects of art," each contributed $200 to open a gallery in the Winnipeg Industrial Bureau Exposition Building that existed at the corner of Main and Water Streets. Thus, the WAG was born, becoming the first civic art gallery in Canada. Now in its 104th year, the Winnipeg Art Gallery has developed from a small civic gallery to Canada’s sixth largest gallery with an international reputation.

 

The Manitoba Museum: The Manitoba Museum is the province’s largest, not-for-profit heritage and science centre. We are renowned for our vivid portrayal of Manitoba’s rich and colourful history, Planetarium shows, and Science Gallery exhibits.
