Learn more about Simple Generosity


And there is still more to come from Simple Generosity this year. Starting August 3, we will be sharing stories from our employees on what #knowledgeis to them. We will also be donating $200,000 to local charities that support the types of learning our employees do to keep thriving. From mentorship, to cultural, to even just learning for fun!

Hopefully our stories will inspire you to continue to learn, and to support others throughout their learning journeys, wherever you might be in your lifelong learning journey.

Complete! $140,000 for families

Recently, we asked you to share stories about how your family thrives together. Hundreds of comments inspired us to pay-it-forward with community donations.

​Keeping the future in mind

The places we’ll go tomorrow start with the things we learn today. In 2021, we’ll empower more people to expand their knowledge and skills.

Coming: August 10 to September 23

​Taking care of businesses

The shops and services in our neighbourhoods are a vital part of our economic story and this year we will help them write a new chapter.

Coming: October 4 to November 29
