Giving back to the communities we call home
Since its inception in 2015, ‘Share the Connection’ has provided over $100,000 back to the communities we operate within in support on numerous causes.
Each year we choose unique initiatives to support, however, the goal is always the same – to evoke a sense of warmth, giving, and connection within our communities.

The Wireless Age team supported the following initiatives:
- The Regina team joined forces with the Winston Knoll Wolfpack for an evening of games, pizza and holiday gifts at Chuck-E-Cheese. The program pairs with intellectual disabilities with mainstream high school students.
- The Saskatoon Wireless Age team made a donation of gifts and groceries for the holiday dinner for the youth at OUTSaskatoon’s Pride Home. The donation enabled the youth and staff at the home enjoyed an evening filled with food, games, and treats!
