- Generosity — helping others, protecting the environment and making our communities more resilient — is one of the values that guides our work. We focus our generosity to help our communities in three areas where we can have the biggest impact:
- Ensuring communities are climate resilient
- Creating opportunities for children and families living in poverty
- Supporting our employees to help others
For more details on how we’re building resilient communities, please read our Social Impact Report.
Municipalities play a critical role in protecting communities from the impacts of climate change. Intact Public Entities and the Intact Financial Corporation have invested $1 million in 10 communities across Canada to bolster resiliency where climate has the ability to have a negative impact. The selected applicants are implementing a variety of projects, including those that create a new wetland by engaging youth, offer FireSmartTM approved enhancements to at-risk homes, build fire breaks around vulnerable communities and provide advance flood prevention information to local residents.
