We don’t just make a living – we make a difference.
We are committed to make the world a better place for everyone. As a community partner, we support a variety of initiatives that make a positive contribution to the health and well-being of people. Our community outreach is focused on Employee Giving, Corporate Giving and Community Giving. We are making a meaningful difference in the communities where we live and work.
We encourage our employees to give back to organizations of their choice through our Volunteer Day Program by providing them with one paid day per calendar year to volunteer. Over the past number of years, more than 200 Nordion employees volunteered almost 1500 hours.
By taking an active role in our communities, we are making a difference in the lives of people and families where we live and work. We want our communities to be stronger, healthier and happier. We believe that it’s our business, our commitment and our responsibility to make the world a better place for everyone.
Here are some of the organizations we support.
Nordion makes a difference in its communities by giving to those who are less fortunate. We donate regularly to relief and recovery efforts around the world and support crisis response through local community charities. An example comes from our Vancouver team where employees hold an annual Winterfest Celebration to raise funds for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. The Food Bank is able to purchase $3 of food for every dollar donated. Our Vancouver team has held this event for over 5 years and collected close to $20,000.
