Flynn Canada is proud to support the communities, in which we live, work and play–after all, their support is the key to our success. We've chosen to give back to these communities in a many ways: through fundraising, by supporting various charities and through supporting local youth sports teams across Canada.
Canadian Diabetes Association
For many years we have maintained a strong partnership with the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) which is searching for a cure to a disease that touches over two million Canadians, including Flynn staff and their family members. Employees participate on a national level through a variety of CDA fundraisers and activities including Team Diabetes marathon events, draws, sports tournaments and much more.
Community Commitment Donations
In addition to continued fundraising efforts for the Canadian Diabetes Association, Flynn Canada Ltd. has committed to donating $100,000 annually to charities, causes and organizations that directly support the communities of the employees! Each month, the committee will select an organization to receive donation from Flynn Canada Ltd. We would like to congratulate the first two organizations selected by the CCD (Community Commitment Donation) committee to receive a donation from Flynn Canada Ltd of $10,000 each.
First Step Wellness Centre (FSWC)
First Step Wellness Centre (FSWC) is nonprofit organization based out of Regina, Saskatchewan which received the first cheque for $10,000. FSWC is focused on optimizing the health and independence of those living with a spinal cord injury. FSWC aims to improve the quality of life for those living with a spinal cord injury through the integration of exercise-based recovery methods, education, and supportive services.
Parent Committee - École Dr. Marguerite Michaud École received the second cheque for $10,000 donation. Dr. Marguerite Michaud is located in Bouctouche, New Brunswick. The parent committee at École Dr. Marguerite Michaud believes that everybody should have a right to play and so they have been fundraising for the past 3 years to provide a new park at the school that has accessibility for people in wheelchairs, the blind, and those with severe autism.
Local Sports Teams
We also recognize the importance of physical activity and team-building for kids across Canada, and offer our support to local sports teams, who foster a sense of connection and community vital to our future. Take a look below for a sample of the teams we support
