Canadian Tire is committed to being a good neighbour that helps you enjoy life in Canada
Canadian Tire has celebrated life in Canada with communities from coast-to-coast since 1922. As our family of companies grows, so too has our commitment to support community programs that build a stronger country. Our Company also thinks and acts in a sustainable way, which helps us grow our business while reducing our costs and the impact on the community and the environment.
This commitment is integrated into our brand, values, operations and business strategy and is guided by the following aspirations:
Commitment to Communities
We are good neighbours who are dedicated to the promotion of healthy, active living and building safer communities. We continue to fulfill this commitment through our investments in social cause and community sponsorships across Canada.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities is our primary vehicle for fundraising and charitable giving. It is a national charity, consisting of a network of 332 local Chapters, dedicated to providing kids from financially disadvantaged families with the opportunity to experience the benefits of organized sport and physical activity. Since 2005, Jumpstart has helped more than 1,000,000 kids (and counting) in communities across Canada. For more information, visit http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en.html.
Sustainability is more than just a concept – it is core to our business. While many people associate sustainability solely with the environment, it actually encompasses the triple bottom line of social, environmental and financial performance.
As a Company, we’ve made it a top priority to be more energy efficient, use fewer resources, produce less waste and reduce emissions in everything we do. Whether it’s providing more environmentally-preferable products to our customers or developing more sustainable ways to package and deliver products, we’re always innovating to be more sustainable. Canadian Tire reports annually on the benefits from sustainability initiatives across the network and on our Company’s annual environmental footprint.
As one of Canada's most trusted companies, we go to great lengths so that the practices of our employees, Directors, independent contractors and suppliers are completed with honesty, integrity and respect. We are grounded in a common set of values and guided by a rigorous set of ethical standards which shapes the way we do business in Canada and abroad. Through our Supplier Code of Business Conduct, we make sure that suppliers abide by our ethical standards when conducting business on our behalf.
