Building stronger communities

We’re caring for the well-being of our communities by giving back $90M and volunteering over 1.3M hours last year. As the most giving company in the world, our long-standing Give Where We Live philosophy continues to inspire our global community.

Powered by purpose

At TELUS, we put community funding in the hands of local leaders who know how to best allocate it. Learn how we are making a difference where we live.
