Canadian Cancer Society
At Northwest, we always prioritize safety. Whether it’s on the road or at home, we understand the importance of preventative action in order to save and improve lives. That’s why we have partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society in their fight against cancer.
We are proud to support the Canadian Cancer Society to help spread awareness, raise funds for world-class research, and improve the lives of all those affected by cancer to lead more fulfilling lives.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada
We believe in the life-changing impact of mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people. That’s why we are longstanding supporters of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada.
It all began when Northwest CEO, Tom Blaney, became involved with the organization in 1982 and he met his Little Brother, Doug, at 11 years old. This mentorship impacted both Tom and Doug significantly and now, 37 years later, their relationship continues to be an important part of both of their lives. As a result, many Northwest team members dedicate their time and their hearts to mentoring youth through this incredible organization.
For over 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has served as a lifeline, pairing children and youth with trained, caring adult volunteers, through mentorship. They ensure children are supported by compassionate adults to help prevent the physical and mental effects of adverse childhood experiences. Big Brothers Big Sisters champions the health and wellbeing of youth, helping to improve the lives of children, physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and academically.
