Businesses and communities are made up of people

– not statistics, not actuarial tables, but real people.

Every single day at Johnston Group, we try to put people first so that, together, we can all work and live in thriving communities. You see, we believe that our work can empower communities and inspire future generations.

Whether through direct support of organizations or our people volunteering in the community – we are all in. We are dedicated to enriching the community and focus our efforts on programs that improve lives.

We believe businesses are the fabric of our communities. “As a part of that, we have the privilege and responsibility to inspire people to achieve better, more fulfilling lives so that, together, we can build better communities” – Dave Johnston

Many Roads in a Community

We believe we can serve our partners in many ways: with vision, through philanthropy, and through volunteering.


We lead by joining boards, by mentoring, and by setting an example – even challenging – other organizations to give more of their resources to the causes they embrace. We share our experiences and try to lead by example.


We donate significantly to ensure services, programs and other solutions that make a difference are available. In many cases there is nothing we need to do beyond giving organizations the funding to do what they are doing so well.


Our people volunteer their time to charitable causes, to community centres, and to other organizations, doing their part to ensure resources are available. Whether during work hours or on our own time, at Johnston Group we have a culture of caring.
