Let’s keep the good going
Connecting Canadians and supporting our communities has always been at the core of why we do what we do. Now, more than ever, when connectivity matters most, we are utilizing all our resources to help you stay safe, informed, healthy and inspired. Including $150 million dedicated to support COVID-19 relief. Stay giving. Stay connected.
Since 2000, our dedicated TELUS team has volunteered 1.4 million days of service, with more than one million hours of giving last year alone. Now, as we celebrate our 15th annual TELUS Days of Giving, we are challenging Canadians to join us by volunteering virtually and safely in your communities. We hope these heartwarming stories will inspire you to choose your own volunteer activity. Through acts of giving, big and small, we can all make a difference by joining the #StayGiving challenge.

Growing for good
As part of their gardens this year, hundreds of team members like Ashton are growing an extra row of veggies and donating the harvest to local food banks. Inspired by the Plant a Row - Grow a Row movement, green thumbs like Ashton are now giving their bounty to help feed the hungry.
Driving foodbank stocks
When the Community Ambassador team learned that their local food bank in Rimouski was running low on supplies, they started a donation drive. After asking the community to leave donations on their porches, 75 team members collected donations door to door. 48 hours later, the shelves were stocked.
Donating for life
Team member Charissa inherited her desire to help from her parents, along with a rare blood type. Now nearing 50 blood donations, she is a proud member of the Donors for Life program, knowing that by giving blood, she can positively impact the lives of others in the most profound way.
Mobility for Good
We have donated over 10,000 devices, tablets and prepaid SIM cards valued at over $5M to enable healthcare practitioners and social workers to sustain contact with isolated, at-risk individuals with no means of communication.
Internet for Good
We are partnering with local school boards in BC and Alberta to expand our Internet for Good program to students in need, bringing this critical connectivity to families who need it for learning from home.
Health for Good
Through a $10M donation from the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, we are supplying new medical technology and equipment and increasing support for food security, seniors’ outreach, virtual education and mental health initiatives.
