FACT: When you use the R-word, people see you differently
On Wednesday, March 7th, not-for-profit company motionball (with a small 'm') is launching its annual #NOGOODWAY campaign, during which it calls upon all Canadians to think twice before using the R-word (or "retard") in everyday conversation. This word has a negative connotation for thousands of Canadians with an intellectual disability, and hearing the R-word hurts them.
This year's #NOGOODWAY campaign features the release of a powerful online video which can be found on the #NOGOODWAY Facebook Page. The message behind the video is that people see you differently when you use the R-word.Read More

Meeting Corporate Social Responsibility goals can be challenging for organizations. In order to make a difference in the community, they must be somewhat lofty.
Active International was thrilled to support one of our key community partners, Food Banks Canada, at the FCPC Charity Golf Tournament. Through Active Cares our Corporate Social Responsibility program, we sponsored the grand prize of the tournament, a trip for two aboard the award winning Rocky Moutaineer.
Active International Canada is teaming up with Food Banks Canada as its official corporate charity. The initiative is part of a larger Corporate Social Responsibility program called Active Cares in Canada that includes reducing the company’s environmental impact, as well as a commitment to transparency, continuous improvement and employee satisfaction.
“Trusted companies don’t operate in a bubble,” says Andrew Bulmer, senior vice president and general manager at Active International Canada. “Active International believes our actions as a company impact not only our employees and direct stakeholders, but also the community and environment in which we operate.”
