Our Mission

The mission of the Western Communities Foundation is to have a positive impact on the infrastructure, services, people and pride of the communities where Western Financial Group employees live and work, through the support of exceptional students, and of community-focused programs involving public health, public housing, education, recreation and similar undertakings.

To express our appreciation and demonstrate our support for the western communities where we live and work, Western Financial Group founded the non-profit Western Communities Foundation in 2002 under the Income Tax Act of Canada (Registration #87030 2619 RR0001)
