Community commitment

TI Corp is committed to supporting charitable programs in the communities where we operate and our customers work and live.

The Community Engagement Team

Several times a year, TI Corp’s Community Engagement Team selects and donates time to a local charity or community organization. Our team looks for volunteer opportunities that contribute to building safer and healthier communities, support goals that align with our business, and foster employee engagement.

TI Corp employees have donated their time and resources to a variety of organizations, including:

  • SHARE Family & Community Services Society, Coquitlam
  • The Surrey Food Bank Society
  • Metro Vancouver Regional Parks
  • Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society

Invasive plant removal at Suwa’lkh School, Coquitlam

Partnering with Fresh Roots Urban Farm Society, TI Corp employees got their hands dirty for a good cause in August 2017, removing invasive plant species at Suwal’lk School in Coquitlam.

The forested areas around Suwa’lkh School, which TI Corp employees helped restore, will be used by the students and teachers of the school’s indigenous educational program for hands-on learning opportunities.

Students will use the restored area to plant and learn about native plant species, and will grow food to be used in the school’s lunch program.

Christmas toy and food drive with SHARE Family and Community Services Society

For years, the Tri-Cities SHARE Family & Community Services Society has been TI Corp’s annual Christmas charity. In December 2017, TI Corp staff donated over 70 toys and $690 to the food bank.

By lending a hand in the communities we serve, TI Corp employees are proud to have made Christmas a little brighter for families in the Tri-Cities and Surrey.

Summer Food Drive with the Surrey Food Bank

TI Corp employees chose the Surrey Food Bank’s Christmas in July fundraiser for its summer initiative.

For the month of July 2015, TI Corp employees brought in food and cash donations in support of the food bank. TI Corp’s toll operator, TC Flow, supported the drive with their own donations. TI Corp’s executive team matched donations for a total cash contribution of $1,100.

This year in 2016, we are proud to share that TI Corp employees donated over 1000 pounds of food.

In addition to the food and cash donated, every year TI Corp employees give time to help distribute food to the food bank clients.

Park restoration with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks

TI Corp teamed up with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks and students from Emma Stephenson Elementary to help plant native species in Surrey’s Tynehead Park.

TI Corp helped students dig and plant more than 250 native plants and trees to return a former house site back to natural park land.

Tynehead Regional Park is alongside Highway 1 in Surrey, and a popular destination for people from across the region. TI Corp had previously made wildlife habitat improvements in the park as part of Port Mann/Highway 1 construction.
