As an early signatory to Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord in 2017, Canada Life pledged a shared commitment to the journey and reconciliation through building new initiatives, partnerships, and advancing reconciliation efforts with Indigenous Peoples. Today, we are proud to share a few of our commitments through Canada Life’s Stronger Communities Together™ corporate giving framework.

Canada Life offers a broad horizon of possibilities. My favorite part of my work here is participating in our DEI employee resources groups, enabling me to be a social justice activist and having a real impact on the experience of my BIPOC colleagues and the culture overall. I have assisted in bringing in famous Indigenous speakers, authors, filmmakers to speak to our employees; and have been in consultation to build a smudge room in our Winnipeg office. We are encouraged to bring our authentic selves to the conversation and our perspectives are valued and considered. Your contributions are recognized and encouraged.
