Great-West Life: Investing in TWU’s Community

Great-West Life and Trinity Western University have a long history of working together. Both share a commitment to strengthening the community, building leaders, and supporting educational development. This is why Great-West Life is the perfect fit as presenting sponsor for Alumni Weekend 2013.

Great-West Life and its subsidiaries, London Life and Canada Life, have a strong presence in the communities they serve. More than just an insurance provider in the region, the companies are a community-minded network of local offices, staff and distribution associates who live, work and give back in a myriad of ways. A focus on the long term and a commitment to do what’s right for their clients have defined the companies’ business for more than a century. These principles are at the heart of their approach to corporate social responsibility, and offer a vision of what makes a community vibrant and sustainable.

Community needs and their solutions do not come in tidy categories; Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life recognize this. Through Stronger Communities Together™, their national program for corporate citizenship and community investment, the companies support projects that span arts and culture, community development, education, health and wellness, and social services. The companies not only engage in issues at a national level, but address many more regional and local concerns.

Offering young people ways to broaden their horizons, supporting causes for health and wellness, expanding education, and looking at unique forms of community engagement are among the priorities Great-West Life supports in British Columbia. With its wide array of degree or non-degree learning experiences and strong focus on training leaders who will make a real and meaningful impact on the world, TWU’s goals align with Great-West Life’s commitment to support post-secondary education that fosters a well-educated Canadian population.

Understanding they are simply one stakeholder among many when it comes to developing and maintaining a vibrant and thriving community, Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life aim to lead by example by seeking out opportunities to give back to their community, in ways that are personal and meaningful.

Great-West Life serves the financial services needs of 12 million Canadians. Learn more about the company’s presence in British Columbia and across the country through the 2012 Public Accountability Statement.
