Support for community organizations

ICBC is committed to investing in programs that support social goals in three areas of focus aligned with our business:  Road Safety; Injury Recovery; and, Sustainable Transportation. 

Allocations of funds to each area will be determined based on opportunities identified, company priorities, and available funds and resources.  Approximately 75 per cent of Community Involvement Program funds will be used to support programs in these focus areas.

Corporate charitable campaigns

ICBC supports employee participation in annual company-wide charitable campaigns endorsed by the Executive Committee.  Currently, ICBC’s campaigns support United Way and BC Children’s Hospital Foundation (“Jean’s Day”).
Approximately 5 per cent of Community Involvement Program funds will be used for corporate charitable campaigns.
