PHILANTHROPY

CHARITABLE DONATIONS PROGRAM

 

As one of North America’s largest developers, owners and operators of commercial real estate we recognize the opportunity to help shape the communities that we serve. Through our philanthropic partnerships we are investing in making meaningful change across Canada, with a strong focus on empowering and inspiring youth to make a positive impact in their community and the lives of others.

 

HOW WE’RE INVESTING IN OUR COMMUNITIES

 

YOUTH EMPOWERMENT


This year we are honored to donate $500,000 to 15 regional charities whose mandate upholds our vision of empowering and inspiring the next wave of leaders. 

 


 

UNITED WAY YOUTH SUCCESS STRATEGY

 

Cadillac Fairview has committed $600,000 to United Way’s Youth Success Strategy over four years. This bold initiative is dedicated to helping youth build the skills that can lead to lifelong employability, with the potential to sustain a family and break the cycle of poverty. We are thrilled to be the first corporate sponsor of such an innovative and crucial service.

 

 

BUILDING COMMUNITIES


We recognize the importance of contributing to our community through direct participation in social events and charitable work, and we encourage employees to actively engage in volunteer opportunities that matter most to them. We call this initiative “Building Communities,” and our overall goal is to help our employees make a meaningful donation to a charity of their choice. To assist employees with this goal, we offer an annual one day paid absence for volunteering, and we donate $3,000 (for an individual) and $5,000 (for a team) to the charity that our employees chose to volunteer for.

 

CF RUN/WALK


The CF Run/Walk was established in 2004 and has since become an annual signature fundraiser. Each year, we invite our business partners, tenants, customers, employees, and their families to walk or run 5 km to help raise money for SickKids and the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO).


CF GOLF CLASSIC


We are proud to pledge 1 million dollars to Women's College Hospital Foundation for a new, groundbreaking ambulatory care facility providing outstanding and innovative health care. The ambulatory care model is aimed at keeping patients out of hospital by improving prevention and treatment options and enhancing quality of life. 

 

 

 

WE PARTNERSHIP

 

Our multi-year partnership  with WE includes the launch of two WE stores at CF Toronto Eaton Centre and CF Rideau Centre, a joint Back to School campaign at our retail properties across Canada and support of WE Schools students, including scholarships to send youth to WE’s Take Action Camp.
