Corporate Social Responsibility, Accountability & Sustainability
OT Works! believes that we have a role to play in making the world a better place. We promote the highest levels of ethical behavior, support advances in education and culture, and advocate sustainable use of natural resources. The OT Works! program is based on three pillars of contribution: local community engagement, children's health, and environmental stewardship.
Because I am a Girl
"Because I am a Girl" is Plan International's global initiative to end gender inequality, and promote girls' rights and lift millions of girls, their families and communities out of poverty. We know that when girls are educated, healthy and empowered, they can lift themselves and everyone around them out of poverty.
Project Change Foundation
Project Change Foundation is a Canadian charitable foundation that acts as a catalyst for creating positive change in communities across our country. The Foundation invests time and money in change makers delivering social or environmental services. OT Works! is a Foundation sponsor and has provided direct support to award recipients Backpack Buddies and Lipstick Project.
World Wildlife Fund
The world's leading conservation organization, WWF has been protecting the future of nature for over 50 years. WWF's unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, and involves action at every level from local to global to meet the needs of both people and nature. OT Works! believes that a healthy environment is key for our healthy lives.
In addition to helping others through our services, our therapists contribute time and resources to local and global organizations for social, environmental and health progress. In the past we have supported: Canadian Red Cross, Oxfam, Doctors Without Borders (MSF Canada), BC Lung Association, Vancouver Food Bank, BC SPCA, Ancient Forest Alliance, Adopt a School (Vancouver Sun Children's Fund) and many others.
