At CANUS we believe in being an integral part of the community of Ottawa-Gatineau where we do business. After all it’s where we live and work as employees, homeowners, parents and friends. So promoting our community well-being is paramount to decisions we make on corporate direction, sourcing, hiring, and promotion.
Our sense of community goes beyond donating money to local charities when requested; as business owners and leaders, and as individual employees, we donate our personal time and other resources to community efforts as well.
There’s actually more to our community than just charities. We also do our best to provide sustainable, permanent work for local people from all walks of life as a diversity-driven employer. We actively pursue business beyond our city limits in order to bring business into our community, not just for Canus, but for our local network of businesses that do business with us. Our sales and service staff are specifically instructed to look out for business opportunities that we can pass on to other businesses in the Toronto-Montreal Business Corridor.
We also participate in local associations geared towards making Eastern Ontario a more vibrant region in which to do business, particularly where we see gaps that may affect our collective abilities as a region and country to prosper economically while protecting the environment and preparing our youth for future challenges.
