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.


Lake of the Woods Concert Series
We are proud to be Gold Sponsors of the Lake of the Woods Concert Series. For over 40 years the Lake of the Woods Concert Group has offered a professional series of concerts to Kenora area residents and visitors. Past shows have included Juno award winner Chantal Kreviazuk, country singer Michelle Wright, folk favorite Valdy, The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra and annual performances by the Manitoba Theatre Center.


Triple P.L.A.Y.
We are proud to be one of many community sponsors helping ensure that all children get to participate in recreation and leisure activities.

Triple P.L.A.Y. is a local program fund that gives Kenora & area kids facing financial barriers the opportunity to participate in recreation & leisure activities, and arts & cultural activities offered in the community.

They help families cover the costs of registration fees, help with equipment, and some transportation to ensure that every child has the chance to reach their full potential!
