OMERS in the Community

OMERS employees embrace a spirit of generosity, helping those in need. We give back to our communities in a number of ways.

  • In the U.K., our London-based team supports the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
  • In the U.S., our teams support local initiatives – New York Cares, the Chinatown Community Cultural Center in Washington, and the Children’s Hospital in Boston
  • In Australia, we supported White Ribbon Day – a day dedicated to ending violence against women and girls
  • In 2016, OMERS employees in Canada launched the OMERS Foundation to channel their  giving to local charities. The OMERS Foundation is proudly a grassroots initiative – with our employees raising the funds and selecting the charities to which we provide grants

Our employees participated in Volunteer Days in 2016, supporting the Toronto Children’s Aid Society, Toronto Region Conservation Authority, Canadian Cancer Society, ABC Life Literacy, Central Eglinton Community Centre, and the Toronto District School Board.
