Consistent with the vision of our parent company, our business is founded on the philosophy of keeping not only our customers, but also our communities, in good hands. It’s the way we operate and a proof point of our core business footprint in Canada, the provision of personal lines home and automobile insurance products and services.
For more than 30 years, the separately funded Canadian Allstate Foundation has provided grants to charities and not-for-profit organizations across the country. Our agents, claims and head office employees are encouraged to carry out work that supports our proud heritage of personal and community involvement. Through volunteer efforts, our employees lend a hand to a wide range of organizations such as United Way, Women’s Centers, hospitals, and numerous not-for-profit and charitable enterprises that give back directly to the local community where our employees and customers live and work.

National sponsorship programs with MADD Canada, Junior Achievement and our Allstate All-Canadians “mentorship through hockey” program with the NHLPA underscore our promise to invest in the youth and young leaders of tomorrow in ways that will sustain our vision well into the future. Our ability to make a difference is truly a reflection of the generosity and willingness of Allstate Canada employees to invest their time, passion and expertise in helping others.
Two key programs, Action Against Distraction and MADD Canada’s Project Red Ribbon, have become cornerstones for Allstate Canada. These education campaigns focus on young and experienced drivers alike in an attempt to reduce driving fatalities and keep our roads safe.
We believe strengthening the social fabric of the communities in which we live and work is the hallmark of good corporate citizenship. Accordingly, Allstate Canada will continue to pursue policies and programs that have a tangible positive social impact.
