Employees Making a Difference

Volunteering in the community is an essential part of our culture. Many of our employees go above and beyond expectations and give back to the community in extraordinary ways. Meet some of our people who devote their time to the happiness of others:

Art - Careers

“A highlight of my career was when I went to Sri Lanka for Habitat for Humanity. We shovelled every day from 8am to 4pm and between 18 of us we finished three houses. It’s a huge commitment, a month of your life, but very rewarding.”
Fire Captain

Jennifer - Careers

“Two years ago I started an orphanage in Kenya where we have 22 children. Colleagues donated their kids gently worn clothing for me to bring to the kids. Others purchased school uniforms so the kids could go to school and others have become surrogate parents. Together we have made a difference in these kids' lives.”
Public Works Program Manager

Jodi - Careers

“My job lets me do good things for the community, like putting a nice pathway through the Richmond Nature Park and working on the community gardens at Garrett Wellness Centre. We have some of the nicest parks in Richmond.”

Judy - Careers

“I look forward to coming to work because every day is different. Kids come in, seniors come in - there are all kinds of activities for everyone. The City is great for being accessible and diverse. Every year we host a ballet recital and over 400 kids come rushing into the Arts Centre in their ballet costumes. It’s really cute to watch.”
