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.


The success and growth of any business is tied to the health of the community in which it operates. At Reith & Associates we believe in supporting our community. We know that active community involvement and partnerships greatly enriches community life, and we are committed to improving the quality of life in St.Thomas and surrounding area. We fulfill this commitment primarily through the support of many local charity groups and grass roots programs.


Reith & Associates Community Volunteer Program
For many years, Reith & Associates’ employees have volunteered their time in our community. We believe the best way to support the community is by digging in, rolling up our sleeves and actively participating in the charities our employees believe in. As a result, we have established the Reith & Associates Community Volunteer Program which annually distributes funds to charities selected by our volunteering employees and their families. We have also extended this program to include charities and community based groups which are supported by our clients.

In addition, Reith & Associates and the Reith Family are the proud sponsors of the Indoor Walking track at the Timken Community Centre. The indoor walking track is a great place for our community to enjoy the preventative health benefits of walking in a safe and controlled environment

Some of the many causes and charitable organizations we have supported over the years include, but are not limited to:

- Shriner’s Hospitals 

- St.Thomas-Elgin General Hospital Foundation 

- Ronald McDonald House 

- Reith Family Walking Track-Timken Community Centre 

- Relay for Life

- Caring Cupboard 

- Elgin-St.Thomas United Way 

- St.Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre 

- Inn Out of the Cold 

- St.Thomas Crime Stoppers
