Community connections are an important part of our company philosophy! We are proud to support the following local organizations:
We’ve had the pleasure of training hundreds of clients of the Bissell Centre over the years, as they integrate back into the workforce. This relationship has allowed us to truly understand the importance of this organization in our community and prompted us to become an ongoing sponsor. We often give back to the Bissell Centre with donations of work clothing, volunteer time and cash.
We also work extensively with other employment and immigration centres in the Greater Edmonton region, providing training for clients and helping them make their way into Alberta’s workforce.
Heart Safe Community – Public Access to AEDs
From July 2000 until September 2003, the City of Edmonton was one of 24 communities across North America that participated in the Public Access Defibrillation Trial (PAD Trial). The trial was undertaken to determine whether deployment of AEDs in public locations would increase survival following out-of-hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrests. In 2009 The “Edmonton HeartSafe” program transitioned into AHS with 500 AEDs registered in an online database that is being used as the template for the new provincial online AED registration program.

Poison & Drug Information Service
It’s not just kids that we need to worry about when it comes to poison control. So many substances can be a poison and can hurt your body if it comes into contact with your eyes, skin or is breathed in or swallowed. Become educated about how to keep yourself, your coworkers and your family safe at www.padis.ca.
Kingsway District Association
Our office, just off the Yellowhead and Kingsway Avenue, is not only a great location for students coming to our courses, it introduced us to the Kingsway District Association. We are members of the Association and also sit on the Board because we think it’s important to support and continue to foster this vibrant and progressive Edmonton business district.
