Learn about Canad Inns Community Involvement

At Canad Inns, we believe in giving back to the community. We participate as both a sponsor and partner in worthy initiatives that contribute to the quality of life in the communities we serve. We know that a corporation who engages with its community engages with their staff.

The company's community involvement is demonstrated at a local level, as well as, in the municipal provincial and national context. Our individual hotel locations are each firmly established as community enterprises and offer support to a variety of local worthy causes.

As a leader of the company, Leo is the driving force behind the vision of community involvement and participation. He is on the Board of the Transcona-Springfield Education Foundation and the Seven-Oaks Education Foundation as well as being personally involved with the Manitoba Club in Winnipeg and the Associates Program at the University of Manitoba School of Business.

Canad Inns also sponsors many events, charities and festivals in Manitoba and encourages all of our staff and facilities to become involved in their local communities.
