Last year we introduced 26 Acts of Kindness, named after our beloved (pre-pandemic) 26th floor Support Centre home base in Toronto. The program is a Giving Back initiative, team building exercise, and a great way to deepen team member engagement. We were thrilled to see how our people embraced it last holiday season and we are very excited to run it again.

Please review the attached x-rays and let me know if any treatment is required and when I can get an appointment.”
