Video: Ceridian Canada announces the launch of Ceridian Cares
Initiative To Improve The Quality of Life Within Communities Across
Canada And Invigorate Employee Engagement In Corporate Social
TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Ceridian Canada announces the launch of
Ceridian Cares - the organization's very own charity whose mission is
to improve the quality of life within communities across Canada by
providing financial assistance directly to individuals and families in
"We believe that organizations such as ours need to integrate socially
responsible behavior into everyday practices," says Dave MacKay,
President of Ceridian HCM and Chair of the Ceridian Cares Board of
Directors. "With Ceridian Cares, our employees are not only unified
with a common goal of collectively fund raising, they also have a say
in how the funds are spent. As such, there's been an incredible amount
of support and enthusiasm from employees across Canada from all levels
of the organization. Our immediate focus now is on delivering grants
to families and individuals who require help."
Ceridian employees generously donated over $189,000 in one week of
fundraising. Add that to the company donation, and Ceridian Cares has
over $300,000 available for grants right now.
Ceridian Cares grants support requests for medical equipment, special
therapies and home adjustments for barrier-free living. Ceridian Cares
grants also provide assistance for children's activities, clothing, as
well as food for families who are struggling to make ends meet.
Families such as the Jacksons have their own Ceridian Cares story to
tell. In May 2013, Ceridian Cares funded the purchase and installation
of a wheelchair lift for Jasmine Jackson, helping the spirited ten-year
old gain the independence she craves and deserves. A preview of
Jasmine's touching story in her family's own words can be viewed here.
"Ceridian Cares believes that all Canadians, no matter their background,
religion or lifestyle, should have access to basic necessities,
including food, appropriate shelter, as well as physical and emotional
well-being," says Dave MacKay. "As an organization, we've always
recognized the value of 'giving where we're living' and look forward to
helping make a difference in someone's life in the very near future."
