We worked with the sports retailer to help frame their corporate citizenship strategy and launch Jumpstart – a national program to that removes financial barriers so kids across Canada have the opportunity to get off the sidelines and into the game.

We brought Sobeys and Dietitians of Canada together to help promote EatRight Ontario – a free toll-free service for Ontarians to speak with a registered dietitian about their nutrition questions and challenges. The partnership helped bring value to Sobeys customers that were looking for nutrition support and increased awareness of the new service to Ontarians.

We worked to develop Shoppers’ citizenship strategy built around its commitment putting women’s health first. We created customer and employee engagement programs.

For the past three years we worked with Pfizer on a cause marketing strategy for its oral contraceptive brand Alesse. The strategy focused on helping help young women realize their unlimited potential. To help them be even more than they thought possible on every level. So we created a campaign that encouraged and supported young women to be more in everything they do. To never settle.
On anything. Because young women should be #NothingLess.
For over a decade we worked with Rogers and created a community investment strategy that underscores Rogers’ commitment to supporting youth education.
