At Canlan Sports, we continuously aim to exceed in all areas of our business. Our commitment to social responsibility is certainly no exception. While employee morale, customer experience and shareholder returns are always top of mind, we are also mindful of our responsibility to our communities, relevant charity alignment and doing our part in preserving our environment.
As a leading owner/operator of recreational facilities in North America, Canlan Sports is focused on being a responsible corporate citizen in all of the markets we serve. Building a reputation based on trust and confidence is important to us. We conduct our business with the highest ethical standards and recognize that giving back to our communities not only means maintaining our reputation, but more importantly, means meeting the social obligations we have towards our people, investors, customers, suppliers, competitors and the community as a whole. We are proud to say that this is accomplished everyday by our team of approximately 1,000 Canlan staff members.
We know there are people out there that struggle to make ends meet and we want to do our part in ensuring that nobody in our local communities goes hungry. Over the last five years, Canlan Sports has engaged its employees and customers to help us collect more than 38,000 pounds of food and thousands of dollars in cash during our annual “Fill The Net” campaign which runs from November to January each year.

National Partnership with Canadian Cancer Society and American Cancer Society
Canlan Sports entered into a partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society, which includes several exciting initiatives that will engage employees, increase awareness for this charity and raise funds in support of them. This includes:
- A fundraising program we call “Jeans Fridays”, providing employees the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays, in exchange for a donation to the CCS or ACS - The Daffodil Campaign as a National Pin Partner that distributes pins to all its locations across Canada and encourages support from employees and customers during Daffodil Month (April)
Now recognized as a national corporate partner with the Canadian Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society, Canlan Ice Sports will continue to support these social responsibility initiatives as well as exploring new opportunities in this area, with increased employee engagement.
