We believe that making a positive contribution to our communities is a fundamental responsibility.
Through various initiatives, the goal of our corporate citizenship program is to use both our human and financial resources to help enrich the lives of those in need. We have a history of deep involvement in philanthropy and seek to instill a culture of charitable giving and volunteerism amongst our staff, colleagues and business partners. In Canada, Brookfield’s matching donations program provides a company match of employees’ individual financial contributions to qualified charitable organizations.
