LifeLabs launches 2021 Community Report: Empowering Our Tomorrow

Toronto, ON – LifeLabs is excited to announce the launch of our 2021 Community Report: Empowering Our Tomorrow. 2021 was a transformative year for our organization, marked by innovation, agility and a focus on building a new, better normal in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Empowering our Tomorrow is about creating an inclusive, caring and diverse workplace culture; leveraging emerging technologies to meet crucial healthcare needs; developing meaningful partnerships that will enrich the communities we serve; and developing sustainable, innovative and customer-focused products and services to build a healthier Canada.

“Like all Canadians, we at LifeLabs are relieved to see the hardship and suffering of the pandemic gradually lifting. And we are grateful for the positive changes that were triggered by the enormous challenges of the past two years,” shared LifeLabs President and CEO, Charles Brown.

“We can proudly say we were there for our customers throughout the pandemic, rapidly adjusting our services and protocols to help Canadians live, work and travel safely. What’s new is that the struggle of the pandemic has unleashed our entrepreneurial spirit. We now know just how much we are capable of as a team.”

As Canadians continue to adjust to a post-pandemic reality, LifeLabs is looking to the future, fueled by the momentum of the innovation, agility and expertise we’ve demonstrated throughout the past two years. From using drones to fly healthcare supplies to remote communities in British Columbia, our partnerships with leading Indigenous and LGBTQ+ organizations, and our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability in our operations, we’ve shown that the lessons we’ve learned can translate into a brighter, healthier future for Canadians – in more ways than one.

To learn more about these LifeLabs initiatives, all we have accomplished in 2021, and our plan for a path forward, view our 2021 Community Report: Empowering our Tomorrow.
