Over 20 years ago, we made the move to have two offices, one in Vancouver and one in Surrey to enable our team members to be within easy reach of their home and community and for us to be available more locally to clients. A short commute has many benefits both socially and for the environment. We have also invested heavily in technology so that our team have the flexibility to work from home.
CWPC focuses on programs that directly benefit local communities through charitable donations as well as supporting research in healthcare such as Canadian Cancer Foundation, Michael Cuccione Foundation (Childhood Cancer Research), MS Society, Down Syndrome Research Foundation, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and Movember to name a few. We actively support our clients when they are engaged in charitable causes.
CWPC accommodates transit fares for employees, and we encourage ride sharing. CWPC subsidizes a program of recycling and composting waste on a large scale to produce top-soil in the lower mainland. We at CWPC have built a reputation of ethical reporting. Our team members are comprised of people from many diverse backgrounds and abilities. We strive to maintain electronic files and working data in a responsible and secure format and consider client confidentiality to be paramount to our business ethos.
