  • Ready, Set … Give!

    On Thursday, September 13, 2018, federal government employees, friends and family are invited to participate in the second edition of Move for What Matters! in support of the 2018 Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign. This 5-km walk/run event will be held in the National Capital Region (NCR) and several cities throughout the country.

    Last year, 3,000 employees of federal departments and organizations came together and took a generous first step toward making a difference in the lives of those most in need in communities across the country. We are counting on people like you to keep up the spirit of giving and join us on Parliament Hill on September 13.

    Ready to give? Register today!
