Establishing strategic business partnerships that drive positive social and public health outcomes in our communities.

Our Strategic Priorities

Sponsorships are an integral component of our social purpose strategy and an important part of TELUS’ brand marketing activities. We select sponsorships that help us fulfill our commitment to creating sustainable communities where we live, work and serve and that help bring our brand promise to life.
Sponsorships are evaluated carefully against the following criteria:
  • Business value: how can this sponsorship drive shared value?
  • Brand awareness and affinity: how will this sponsorship promote TELUS’ let’s make the future friendly® brand promise and deliver positive brand experiences?
  • Brand engagement: how can this sponsorship create authentic customer and community experiences by showcasing our innovative products, services and technologies?
  • Positive social and public health outcomes: how will this sponsorship support TELUS’ social purpose by creating remarkable outcomes in the areas of health?
  • Team member engagement: how can we connect this sponsorship to TELUS employees in a meaningful way and advance our corporate culture?

Current Sponsorships

TELUS is proud to partner with many incredible organizations across Canada. Our current portfolio aligns with our business values and priorities, focusing on youth and leveraging technology in the areas of health, education and the environment.

TELUS sponsorships allow us to connect and celebrate our communities, embrace diversity and drive positive social change. We integrate our technology, products and services to bring people closer together in order to make a positive difference in the lives of Canadians.

Funding our communities

At TELUS, we understand that each community has unique needs. That’s why we offer funding that drives meaningful change in communities across Canada and globally.
