We’re building a Healthier Canada within our Communities
Our Community programs support LifeLabs' vision of building a healthier Canada by fostering strong community relationships and investing our time, resources and expertise to meaningfully impact the health and well-being of people in our communities. Across Canada, LifeLabs contributes to the health of our communities beyond our day-to-day operations; we are connecting to our local communities and supporting them through our three community programs.
Employee Giving Program
Our Employee Giving Program supports LifeLabs employees who are active in the community as volunteers, fundraisers and donors for registered charities or non-profit organizations. We support their efforts through our Corporate Giving Guidelines, which provide matching funds that are donated to deserving organizations on behalf of employees who fundraise or volunteer for them.

Community Investment Program
The Community Investment Program is a one-time fiscal year financial or in-kind investment to a Canadian registered charity or non-profit organization that works to improve the health outcomes for Canadians.
Like many companies, LifeLabs receives hundreds of proposals every year. To ensure that we allocate our funds responsibly and fairly, we have developed the following community investment guidelines:
- LifeLabs’ community investment program is focused on health care services in Canada. We make no exceptions.
- We only fund projects with measurable results. We cannot provide general operating support.
- Preference is given to programs that benefit communities where our employees live and work.
- We only support organizations that are fiscally sound and have strong management and accountability practices
We focus specifically on the following three key areas of health care:
Health promotion – Promoting healthy lifestyles in order to prevent illness.
Health care delivery (disease treatment and management) – Helping people who require acute care or who have a chronic or life-threatening illness receive the care they need to improve their health and quality of life.
Health education and advancement – Training and developing health care workers; advancing our knowledge of disease and effective treatment.
