Allstate Canada’s featured partnerships
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada
Allstate Canada has supported the work of MADD Canada for nearly 25 years and is the Title Sponsor of Project Red Ribbon, the National Sponsor of MADD Canada’s School Assembly Program and an Official Sponsor of MADD Canada and Campaign 911. Allstate is also a partner on MADD Canada’s impaired-driving research and liability publications.
Recognizing that Canadian youth are greatly overrepresented in the statistics of deaths and injuries resulting from impaired-driving crashes, MADD Canada developed a highly acclaimed School Assembly Program in 1994.
To launch this program, MADD Canada contacted Allstate Canada about providing funding and support for this unique youth outreach program. Funding contributed by sponsors helps pay for all facets of the program, including script development, casting, film production, exhibition of the film via the School Assembly Tour and development of support materials related to the presentation.
During 2011–2012, MADD Canada’s video campaigns were presented in 1,188 schools, reaching approximately 1 million students.
In 2010, Allstate Canada, in partnership with the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA), created the Allstate All-Canadians program, a mentorship program designed to guide the next generation of Canada’s hockey youth.
For more than 50 years, Allstate Canada employees have volunteered their time and donated dollars to help fulfill United Way’s mission to improve lives and build community.
Allstate Canada agencies and staff support local Crime Stoppers’ initiatives across the country to help in the fight against crime.
Allstate Canada staff volunteer annually as Junior Achievement mentors to help young Canadians discover leadership, financial literacy, entrepreneurship and workforce readiness skills.
