In The Community
Innovapost has been a committed supporter of local charities throughout Ottawa, Mississauga and Toronto since the company was founded in 2002. We are very pleased that in that time, Innovapost has gained a reputation as a company that cares about its communities.
To date, Innovapost employees and their families have raised over 1.6 million dollars to support amazing charitable organizations, including: The United Way, Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa 67′s Adopt-A-School Program.
A cornerstone of Innovapost’s charity fundraising efforts is the company’s Community and Charitable Events Committee (CCE). The CCE was formed to create a bottom-up, employee-led team to bring Innovapost into the community and to provide focus and support to those initiatives proposed by our employees.
