How We Support Causes?
At Canad Inns we believe in giving back to the community, and participate in worthy initiatives that contribute to the quality of life in the communities we serve. Canad Inns has been, and continues to be, a community-minded corporation with a tradition of family involvement and a responsible corporate attitude.
One of the fundamental operating principles key to the success of Canad Inns is a commitment to the community. Canad Inns has a strong sense of responsibility to each community it operates in. The company’s community involvement is demonstrated at a local level, as well as in the municipal, provincial and national contexts. The individual Destination Centres are each firmly established as community enterprises, and offer support to a variety of local worthy causes.
Canad Inns sponsors many events, charities and festivals in Manitoba.
On July 1st, Canad Inns hosts the Canada Day celebrations at Assiniboine Park. Canad Inns Family Fun Day is a family oriented day free to all who attend and is a great way to celebrate our nation’s birthday. Canad Inns organizes the daylong festivities, which include games and activities for children, entertainment and a spectacular fireworks display.
Canad Inns Winter Wonderland, a Winnipeg family tradition, is a partnership with Red River Exhibition Park, offering our community a festive seasonal drive through light display each December and January. Proceeds are returned to the community through Kidsport and Riverview Health Centre.
Canad Inns is the Co-Title sponsor of WE Day Manitoba and we are proud supporters of WE and WE Day. WE Day is the movement of our time, empowering a generation of young global citizens through an inspirational event and a year-long educational initiative. Canad Inns believes in Manitoba Youth and we are proud to support our students and schools in fundraising efforts on both a local and global level.
Canad Inns is the Presenting Sponsor of the HSC Foundation Celebrity Human Race. The Race is an exciting and effective charitable fundraising initiative providing critical funds for the HSC Foundation. The money raised enables the HSC Foundation to continue to help Manitoba families through world-class research, new technologies, education and direct patient care.
In October 2007, Canad Inns presented Grey Cup championship rings to the members of the Winnipeg Blue Bomber teams who won the Grey Cup in 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1961. The players were honoured with a dinner at Canad Inns Destination Centre Polo Park called Ring In a Night of Nostalgia. Leo Ledohowski, Executive Chair of Canad Inns, presented the first ring to Coach Bud Grant.
In February 2007, Canad Inns announced a donation of $ 1 million dollars to the The Canadian Museum for Human Rights. This world-class museum is the largest human rights centre in the world and showcases Canada’s contribution to human rights.
Canad Inns continues to promote and bring awareness to the Holodomor, the genocide in Ukraine in 1932-1933. In 2008, Canad Inns produced a video documentary with stories from some survivors now living in Winnipeg. This video has been distributed to all high schools in Manitoba, along with schools and universities across Canada, the US, Europe, Australia and Ukraine.
Canad Inns 3,500 family members give generously each year to the United Way and are supported in their efforts with a generous matching corporate donation through one of Canada’s oldest and most respected United Way campaigns.
In addition, each of our facilities is involved in and participates in many charities and organizations. Canad Inns encourages all of our family members to be involved in their local communities.
