Corporate Responsibility

Making things better together 

In 2014, we launched our new five-year corporate responsibility strategy: Making things better together. Our strategy focuses on four themes that we address through various initiatives and business practices. They are: Safe, Secure World; Thriving Communities; Sustainable Future; and Responsible Business

… in our communities and at work ...'big hearted' workforce

  • In 2014 we introduced a new regional program whereby each region votes on the top three charities or causes it wants to support that year. With this program, RSA Canada won the PR Daily’s 2014 CSR Award in the “Best Employee Engagement” category 
  • We are passionate about supporting the causes employees care about. We match up to $200 of each employee’s donations each year – employees choose the charities that mean the most to them
  • We make a $500 donation to a charity where an employee volunteers for 100 hours or more during the year
