Paladin Cares

How we’re making the world a friendlier place

We know you care, and so do we, having a positive impact on diverse communities is important both where we live and where we work. Paladin’s Four Seasons of Giving approach to charity maintains a year-round commitment from all our branches coast-to-coast. Each season marks a different corporate initiative, with individual branches supporting several local organizations and programs that are of significance to team members. 


Paladin is passionate about our support of the Canadian Cancer Society and their Daffodil Campaign. Cancer has touched many of our families and friends, and we're proud to say Paladin has raised over $500,000 for this worthy cause.


Paladin has committed to donating a minimum of 100 pints of blood in support of the Canadian Blood Services. Branches compete to see who can donate the most, which last year resulted in us nearly reaching our annual goal in a single day.


Mental health is a huge part of our lives, our work, and our communities. Dollar a Day helps us raise money to support local charities that focus on mental health. Each of our branches commits to raising a dollar a day ($365/year) and in the fall, each of our regions will pick a charity to receive our donations.


The season of giving marks our commitment to children through Make-A-Wish Canada. Their mission is to grant children with life-threatening medical conditions hope, strength, and joy. Paladin raises money annually to help one special child’s wish come true.
