Community Involvement

Pony Pals Therapeutic Riding Association

 

The Global Grizzlies, the company’s softball team, has participated in Canada Life’s Annual Charity Softball Invitational Tournament since 2005.   Players raise donations to support charities and to enter to compete.  Global Grizzlies players consist of employees, advisors, friends and family members raising donations for deserving charities.  Over the years, this tournament has raised over $436,000 for various charities in the Greater Vancouver area.

The Global Grizzlies are a force to be reckoned with both on and off the field.  In 2011, the Grizzlies not only finished second place in the tournament but they were also the highest fundraising (donations) MGA team.  In 2012 & 2013, the Grizzlies were once again the highest fundraising (donations) MGA team.


ForestersKABOOM!

On July 9, 2011, Foresters, KaBOOM! & Volunteers built a new playground for Vancouver Children. The playground at Champlain Heights Community School will provide 21,000 children and their families in the Vancouver community with a great place to play and engage in healthy family time. In less than eight hours, the child-designed playground was built from scratch by hundreds of volunteers from Foresters, Champlain Heights Community School and the surrounding community. In addition, children and families spent the day playing games and participating in arts and crafts activities. Global Pacific team members and their families were so proud to have been a part of the amazing volunteers that brought this idea to life.
