Supporting the communities within which we work


At IPC, we built IPC Cares to bring together the various efforts we make towards enhancing the communities within which we operate. By adopting causes that are close to our hearts, we keep ourselves committed and accountable.

Last year alone, as a company, we supported the aid efforts on the Fort McMurray fires, palliative care through The Healing Cycle Foundation and women and children through The Salvation Army.

Perhaps the most significant effort we undertake, and one that we believe is representative of the kind of work that inspires and keeps us committed to our CSR efforts, is the community development project in Honduras with The Carpenteros & Friends. Last year’s project involved a group of IPC staff and Advisors volunteering their time and energy on the ground. Very little is as inspiring and rewarding as living the lives of the people you’re helping, and every one of the people who took the journey came back a changed person, even more determined to stay committed to making a difference in the world!

We also made countless small but significant contributions of our time and resources within our communities through many grassroots charities we believe in, and the ripple effect of their efforts are always rewarding.


Claude and David have been a sponsor of the Screaming Eagles “Adopt a School” program for some years. The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Adopt-a-School program is a joint venture between the Screaming Eagles Hockey Club, local businesses, and schools in the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board. The Adopt-a-School program is meant to reward students for their academic, athletic, or personal achievements with tickets to a Screaming Eagles home game.
