Thales Canada is strongly committed to social responsibility programs, and at the community level we implement programs that support local charities, such as the United Way, and the Daily Bread Foodbank in Toronto. By also being environmentally conscious, we manage our facilities and manufacturing operations in ways that minimize energy consumption and waste.
We are financially supporting and participating in:
• True Patriot Love, a national foundation that supports and honours members of the Canadian military and their families. It was founded by a group of citizens dedicated to building bridges between Canadian civilians and their military, in order better understand and appreciate the sacrifices of soldiers and their families. Included with this support is sponsoring with a Thales plaque the Warden Street overpass on the Hwy 401 section known as The Highway of Heroes.
• Annual Army Run
• FIRST Robotics Canada, a registered charity highly supported by governments, has a mission to inspire Canadian high school and elementary school students to pursue further studies and careers in science, technology and engineering. It pursues its mission primarily through offering opportunities for students, working in teams and assisted by expert adult mentors, to build robots and to take part in tournaments which feature on-field competitions, judged awards and other forms of recognition, potentially including university and college scholarships.
