From the neighborhoods where our stores are located, to the ones where our coffee is grown – we are committed to helping communities thrive where we do business.
Bringing people together, inspiring change and making a difference in people's lives – it's all part of being a good neighbour. And it's a commitment rooted in the belief that we can use our size to bring about positive change.
- Opportunity Youth
- We are committing 10% of all store new hires to Opportunity Youth. These are motivated young people who have a strong desire to work, but are facing various systemic barriers to employment and require even more support in finding paths to opportunity. As one of the country’s leading employers for young people, we are taking real action to tackle the country’s critical youth unemployment rates.
- Youth Work Placement Program
Our Youth Work Placement Program supports some of Canada’s most vulnerable young people—those who may be homeless, out of foster care or recovering from addiction, may have little or no high school education, may be unable to afford the rising costs of education, or youth who suffer from mental illness.
