Ecclesiastical 50th Anniversary Emblem

2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Ecclesiastical in Canada.

To honour this milestone occasion, our employees have selected 50 charities from across the country to be awarded grants through the Community Impact Grant program.

The Community Impact Grant is our signature Canadian giving program and we administer the grants under the auspices of our charitable trust owner, Benefact Trust.

From our employees...

"Rainbow Railroad has helped over 1,600 LGBTQI+ people safely relocate, but many more need help. LGBTQI+ people around the world still face harassment, violence, discrimination, and persecution. With a Community Impact Grant, they would be that much closer to reaching their goal."

-Amanda Smith, Business Associate at Ecclesiastical
