Welcome to Power Corporation in the Community

The first responsibility of business is to be profitable and sustainable. Businesses must also be part of the larger society and play a positive role in the communities they serve.

At Power Corporation, we believe that strong communities create strong businesses and we strive to do our part to make a positive contribution to the communities where we are established. We believe in the ability of the voluntary sector, working in partnership with governments and businesses, to build a better society with better opportunities for all Canadians.

In the past, we have been privileged to contribute to more than 800 charitable organizations in communities across Canada. These organizations play a much needed role helping people in difficulty, providing better healthcare to those in need, or introducing whole generations of people to new educational or cultural experiences. Collectively, they have an important story to tell.

We have created this dedicated website to showcase what some of these organizations have achieved and the difference they are making every day in the lives of countless people. We believe you will be inspired, as we are, by their efforts to bring a community of people together for the benefit of a common cause.

By featuring these organizations, large and small, it’s our goal to make as many people as possible aware of their outstanding work for the betterment of our society.
