For the past six decades, Rogers has been proud to connect Canadians to a world of possibilities and the memorable moments that matter most.
Rather than celebrating 60 years by looking back, we’re choosing to look forward. The 60 Project honours our 60th Anniversary – in an unprecedented year where Canadians’ normal was turned upside down, inside out, and changed forever.
While many people long to get back to a normal that once was, we’ve realized that we want to get back to something better. That’s why our mission is to double down on supporting our customers, our communities and our country.
It means creating jobs in new communities and committing to a 100% Canadian-based Customer Service Team. It means keeping Canadians connected when they need it most, with a world-class network. It means supporting more community organizations, like Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada, Women’s Shelters Canada, and Food Banks Canada.
As we celebrate our 60th anniversary, we are doubling down on our commitment to keep Canadians connected and help those who need it most. Through The 60 Project, our team and their families will volunteer 60,000 hours across their local communities, so our individual efforts form a collective wave of impact that rolls across our country. The level of need is unprecedented right now, but so is the spirit of giving back that lives across our 25,000 strong team from coast-to-coast-to-coast. ~Joe Natale, CEO of Rogers
Kicking off with our Food Banks Canada & Jays Care Foundation ‘Step Up to the Plate’ initiative and running until Canada Day 2021, our team and their family members will donate 60,000 volunteer hours to help our local communities and those who need it the most.
Watch this tracker rise as we continue to track our time giving back… getting us closer to 60,000!
We are celebrating the remarkable achievements of more than 400 students from across Canada who will start their post-secondary studies with a Ted Rogers Scholarship this fall. These young leaders – nominated by our 17 national partner organizations – are engaged in our communities and the world around them.
To mark Rogers 60th anniversary, we are truly swinging for the fences! For the love of youth, for the love of our communities, and for the love of the game, here’s how we’re playing ball.
20 years ago, we welcomed the Blue Jays and the Jays Care Foundation into the Rogers family and never looked back. To help celebrate this special milestone, our team partnered with Food Banks Canada to supply 8 million meals to Canadians in need across the country.
On International Day of the Girl, we meet a young leader who is breaking down barriers to bring new voices to STEM fields.
