Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Medicine Hat and District

It’s a tradition for Cancarb to sponsor the annual report and board meeting of the local branch Big Brothers Big Sisters. And in 2020 Cancarb was proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of Bowl for Kid’s Sake, the organization’s largest annual fundraiser.


Donation Drive

The Mustard Seed is a safe and supportive place where people experiencing problems associated with poverty and homelessness can have their physical needs met in the short term, but also begin to heal and grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for a better life down the road.

In 2020 Cancarb matched Cancarb employees’ contributions to The Mustard Seed, raising awareness and more than $7100 for their programs. 

Funds For HALO

Cancarb is pleased to regularly sponsor Halo, the only dedicated medical evacuation helicopter for southern Alberta and southwest Saskatchewan. Funded exclusively through corporate and private donations, the availability of this charitable group’s helicopter improves response time to trauma victims in our remote often inaccessible area.
