Enabling the Realization of Dreams

We support people and organizations that focus on our four pillars: Family, Environment, Engineering and Education. This allows us to make a positive contribution to Canadians everywhere.
We help charities that support children and their families in times of need, and we help fund programs that create learning opportunities for families as a whole.

Make-A-Wish® is the world’s largest wish-granting organization, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 350,000 children since 1980.
We partner with charities that bring environmental education to classrooms and after-school programs across Canada. By teaching communities about conservation and initiatives like the ‘One Honda. One Tree.’ campaign, we’re helping create Blue Skies for our Children.
