Making places better
Wesbild takes our responsibilities as a corporate citizen very seriously and we have since we began in 1981. That’s why Wesbild is known for building authentic, sustainable communities. Neighbourhoods we would want to live in, shopping centres we would want to spend time in. We believe being a good corporate citizen means giving back, which is why Wesbild continues to give back to the wider community. Wesbild’s commitment to the community doesn’t stop simply with cash or prize donations. Our goal is to truly find a way to help individuals have better lives.
To be at one’s best, one must care for the mind, body and soul.
Below are some of the ways we are working to build and support community through a focus on education, health and art.
Providing access to education has the potential to better not only the life of the person receiving it, but society at large and the lives of future generations to follow. Wesbild works to support initiatives through which it can positively impact youth through education.
According to a 2022 study by the University of Toronto, an estimated 5.8 million people in Canada experienced some form of food insecurity in 2021, of which 1.4 million were children. Wesbild works to support initiatives through which it can positively impact the physical health and wellbeing of Canadians, in particular, youth.
Numerous research studies support that, whether experiencing or actively creating art, in almost any form, has positive impacts on mental health and stress. Wesbild works to support initiatives through which it can positively impact culture, community and health through the fine arts.
