Giving Back

Enriching the Lives of Others

Signiant’s culture embraces the belief that, quite simply, we’re all in this together. And, that some of the best ideas and innovations are inspired by the people, projects and communities we support outside of the office. Our employees actively donate their time and resources on initiatives that enrich the local communities where we live and work, such as:

1st Merrickville Scout Group | Merrickville Village, Ontario  
The oldest Scout group in North America, 1st Merrickville helps young people develop physically, intellectually and socially to build confidence, self-esteem and important leadership skills through outdoor adventure, education and fun.

Greater Boston Food Bank | Boston, Massachusetts
The Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. By 2013, the group aims to distribute enough food to provide at least one meal a day to those in need.

Movember Canada | Ottawa, Canada
Every November, “Movember” is responsible for sprouting moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate cancer and mental health initiatives.
