Supporting the neighbourhoods where we live and work

Across Canada, Fairstone employees volunteer and hold leadership roles in community organizations. We are dedicated to sharing our time, talents and expertise and making a difference in our communities. We sponsor local events and support activities that recognize, entertain and bring people together. And we proudly provide financial support for both national and local charities.

JA Canada

JA Canada is the largest provider of youth business education programs in Canada, offering programs in the areas of financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship for elementary and high-school aged youth. From 2015–2017 Fairstone will contribute $75,000 to support JA Canada's Dollars with Sense program. Fairstone's support also includes a commitment to provide employees as coaches. Staff will deliver financial literacy programs in classrooms across Canada, teaching students money management skills and challenging them to apply financial concepts in their own lives.

United Way

Each year, employee volunteers develop events and activities to raise urgently needed funds for the United Way and its member agencies. These events, along with presentations from member agencies, encourage employees to make a payroll donation and raise awareness of the importance of the United Way's work in our communities.
