At Highstreet, we believe that our company and our employees have an important stake in the prosperity, health and quality of life of our communities. Since our inception in 1998, we have operated a corporate citizenship program which has cultivated a culture of giving back and continues to be a shared goal amongst our teams.

An Imagine Caring Company

Imagine Canada LogoSince 2001, as an Imagine Canada Caring Company we have supported the principles of corporate citizenship and benchmarks for community investment established by Imagine Canada. Our commitment to Imagine is as follows:

  • We commit a minimum of 1% of pre-tax domestic profit to support charitable and not for profit organizations
  • We encourage and facilitate the personal giving and volunteer activities of our employees
  • We champion and sustain at least one community investment project that leverages the skills and competencies of the company to make a difference in the community
  • We demonstrate leadership by annually publishing a public Corporate Citizenship Report
