2019 Social Purpose Highlight Video


The 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. So far we have awarded 104 grants and look to help even more team members in the future.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has created a heightened need for assistance. If you have been impacted by COVID-19, or wish to donate to the Fund to help those who have, we encourage you to learn more.
