At The Source, we are proud of our commitment to foster an inclusive, equitable and accessible workplace, where all team members and customers feel valued, respected and supported. We are dedicated to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities where we live and serve, and where every team member has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Some of the initiatives we support are Associate-led networks that provide networking, professional development and mentorship. This Pride month we are supporting our team through diversity and inclusion panel discussions, hearing from our team’s experiences, learning about supplier diversity in events, offering queer family planning webinars, and providing gender inclusivity training to ensure all of our Associates feel respected and supported.

KIDS HELP PHONE
Since 2012 we have raised over a million dollars in support of Kids Help Phone through various fundraising campaigns.
"I recently came across a post on Kids Help Phone's website where a young person wrote to us for help and said, "I need someone to listen to me, and hear everything I have to say. Someone who will support me… someone who won't run when I feel sad." That this young person knew they could turn to Kids Help Phone to have their voice heard is an incredible reminder of why it's so critical that we continue to be there 24/7 for every young person in Canada. Kids Help Phone's partnership with The Source comes at an important time in the organizations' history when demand for our professional counselling services, both online and on the phone continues to grow, and often exceeds our ability to meet it. Because of your support and commitment, kids, teens and young adults in Canada will continue to have a safe place to turn to. Thank you to everyone at The Source for helping us be there."
