Strengthening the opportunities for people of all ages and
backgrounds in our region to thrive ensures a sustainable future.
We support community intiatives that further opportunities for
young people to build successful careers here at home, help
residents gain new skills and share knowledge, and give a helping hand to the disadvantaged to participate in our economy.
We recognize that "community" does not stop at the edge of the Shuswap. While "charity begins at home", it does not end there.
Bringing people together, supporting opportunities for them to interact, enhancing connections: these strengthen the community.
Encouraging opportunities for multi-generations to gather, particularly where it is open and free to all, are where we provide the greatest impact.
From Wednesdays on the Wharf and the annual Roots & Blues Festival to Canada Day Children's Festival and Sicamous Canada Day, we dedicate time to bringing the community together.
The liveliness of a community bubbles up from its youth.
Whether it is a minor sports team, an amateur theatre production,
or recreational infrastructure, we seek opportunities where we can make the greatest difference.
We support the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, Theatre on the Edge
Festival, and have contributed to the SASCU Recreation and
SASCU Sports Complex buildings for the Salmon Arm Recreation
Society just to name a few.
