Impact & Responsibility

Making a positive impact on the Canadian Economy

Our business is centered on connecting Canadians to the things that matter most- families, friends, work, and community. Our investments in our leading national work network means we not only offer innovative solutions for our customers, we also create highly skilled and well-paying jobs. We invest in our communities by buying local good and services that support small businesses, pay our fare share of taxes, and support charities and community groups from coast to coast.

2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Report

We strive to create a brilliant digital future for Canadians. That means providing products and services that are simple, easy to use and worry-free, so that our customers can go about their daily lives. It’s also about the way we do business. People want to work with a company they feel is ethical and transparent, and that means we consider the societal, economic and environmental benefits and costs in everything we do.

We have offices, stores, employees, network facilities and media outlets spread throughout the country, and we’re very proud of that.
