FirstService Relief Fund

The companies of FirstService share a commitment to our people. After all, they are our most important asset. We established the FirstService Relief Fund to help those in times of unforeseen financial hardship. The Fund exists due to the generosity of our people, who selflessly donate so that their colleagues in need are able to apply for grants. In 2018 we awarded 28 grants and look to help even more team members next year.
