making a difference
Because there’s more to life than work, we put the talents and interests of our team members to good use to support causes that are close to our heart by participating in events or helping local community groups.
Every spring, we choose an organization and offered a full day of volunteering. This very special involvement creates a real sense of accomplishment and builds strong bonds between our team members.
Energy to spare and contagious enthusiasm!
A DAY FOR
EN MARGE 12-17
This year, we rolled up our sleeves to do a big cleaning operation at En Marge 12-17, an organization that supports Montréal youth by offering them an alternative to running away from home and living on the streets.
Tidying up, painting, landscaping—everyone got involved to spruce up their premises and building!
You can learn more about their mission here: www.enmarge1217.ca.
2016 AND 2017: 130 KM OF CYCLING AT THE GRAND DEFI
Because we believe that physical exercise is the key to health and well-being, we participated twice in the Grand Défi Pierre-Lavoie’s La Boucle event. During these events, our team of cyclists managed to bike 130 km, and we plan to take on this challenge again every year!
The proceeds from our participation in this event will be invested in the charitable causes run by the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie.
2016: HELPING FAMILIES
WITH A BIG CLEAN-UP
In 2016, our team broke out its brooms and feather dusters to help with various chores at the Centre de répit-dépannage Aux Quatre Poches in Boucherville. This organization was founded in 1990 to provide respite to families caring for children with multiple disabilities.
A 48-HOUR BIKE RIDE TO BENEFIT MAKE-A-WISH QUEBEC
What could be more rewarding than granting a wish for a sick child?
To help make this a reality, Consortech put together teams of riders who collected donations and rode their bikes during this 48-hours event.
Our passion, dedication and team spirit helped us succeed brilliantly at this daunting challenge, and we were able to give a total of $17,000 to Make-A-Wish Quebec for our three participations.
