As a Canadian Company, we believe in giving back in ways that can make real and meaningful differences in communities from our local programs and across Canada.

By using our expertise in financial planning to educate and provide resources for all Canadians, we empower them to manage their personal finances with confidence. It’s these kinds of positive changes that help create a stronger community and a better future for everyone.

Samaritan House

What began as a simple women's shelter has grown into an organization well equipped to help people holistically - physically, intellectually, emotionally, environmentally, and spiritually. Through our food bank and resource centre, shelter, our literacy programs, and second stage housing for women and children fleeing domestic abuse, literally hundreds and hundreds of people are assisted every month.

Our name says it all: we're a community. Small class sizes make it easy for you to meet new friends and for your instructors to get to know you personally. Find your way forward at Assiniboine Community College. We have more than 40 diploma and certificate programs across a range of disciplines including food and hospitality, business, agriculture and the environment, health and human services, trades and technology.

United Way

United Way is a federated network of over 80 local United Way Centraide offices serving more than 5,000 communities across Canada, each registered as its own non-profit organization and governed by an independent volunteer-led local Board of Directors. Locally and nationally, our goal is the same – to create opportunities for a better life for everyone in our communities. United Way has a long history in Canada, dating back a century. Over the years, we have been known by many names – among them Community Chest, United Appeal and Red Feather. Throughout, we are proud to have improved lives in local communities across the country.

Alzheimer Society

We are the first national title sponsor of the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada. This is the largest fundraising initiative for the Alzheimer Society, with nearly 300 walks per year raising funds across Canada to help families living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. IG is also delivering free financial empowerment seminars to individuals and families impacted by the disease to aid in long term planning.

Lions Club

Lions serve. It’s that simple, and it has been since we first began in 1917. Our clubs are places where individuals join together to give their valuable time and effort to improving their communities, and the world. Our history is a long one. And a proud one. For over 100 years, we’ve served with uncommon kindness, putting the needs of our neighbors, our communities and our world first. We look back at our storied past with pride, but we know it’s only the beginning. Every day, we’re building on our legacy with the goal of making an even greater impact in the future.

Kiwanis Club

The Kiwanis Club of Brandon received its Charter from Kiwanis International on February 7, 1919. Brandon was the second club formed in Manitoba and the second club in what would become Western Canada District. Fellowship and adherence to the Objects of Kiwanis form the basis on which each and every Kiwanian aspires to in his or her daily life. The bond of fellowship is cemented by the fundraisers to support our community service projects, which have varied over the years. At this writing, the club focuses on three major fundraisers. The first is our annual soapbox “Kar Derby”, the second project is our annual bicycle auction, the third major fundraiser is the delivery of event posters on behalf of the Keystone Center and the Provincial Exhibition
