Instill a sense of belonging
“Find ways to bring people together and instil a sense of belonging to their community is not a good thing to do, it’s indispensable. We know that by uniting people, we contribute to stronger communities and healthier, ” says Colm Holmes, president and chief executive officer of Aviva Canada.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the competition Fund, Aviva Canada aims to provide financial support to charities and community groups who joined forces under the impetus of interest, a culture, or causes in common.
