Investing in our future
As a platinum sponsor, we work with DAREarts Foundation to help expose 10,000 children and youth to diverse cultural opportunities and arts education that they might not otherwise get—helping to empower them and unlock their potential.
Relying on the crucial input and output of young leaders across the nation, jack.org has opened up the dialogue on mental health in schools and communities to end the stigma once and for all. By enabling young people to guide the discussion. We proudly support the 165 Jack chapters across Canada who work hard to help ensure our youth can ask for and offer help more freely.
Each year, over 100 trained Jack Talk speakers, a national Jack Summit, and 264 Jack Regional Summits are helping to reduce the youth suicide rate and lift the mental wellbeing of all young Canadians to new heights.
Pathways to Education is helping to make Canada the Graduation Nation with a program proven to lower dropout rates. Working alongside the school system, the Pathways to Education program makes a multi-year commitment to youth and their families. Through a force of volunteers, the program delivers after-school tutoring, mentoring, and financial assistance to overcome the barriers that can stand in the way of education.
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is Canada’s most research-intensive hospital and the country’s largest centre dedicated to improving children’s health. SickKids leads child health innovation by integrating care, research, and teaching.
Northbridge is committed to supporting SickKids research by funding endowments in support of a Chair in Pediatric Research, a Chair in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the Fellowship in Leukemia Research, and the new Catalyst Scholar for Healthy Active Kids to combat childhood obesity in Canada.
Tree Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to the planting and maintenance of urban and rural trees across the country.
As an insurance company, getting our customers back to business after a catastrophe is what we’re all about. Supporting Tree Canada’s Operation ReLeaf allows us to help restore our community green spaces following a disaster. We also support the greening of five schools across Canada every year.
