Community Involvement

Giving Back to the Community

Established in 1979, Pacific Insurance Broker has grown into one of the most knowledgeable insurance brokerage firms in Toronto. Giving back to the community is a fundamental part of our company culture. These are some of the organizations we continue to support through the years. We are always looking for new community partners and ways to give back to the community we all share.

SickKids Foundation Radiothon

Over the past twelve years, Fairchild Media and the Chinese community have raised over $4.5 million to help SickKids fight the greatest challenges in child health by hosting a live radiothon.

Last year, over $420,000 was raised in one day for SickKids Hospital through their on air corporate matching program. We had over 200,000 radio listeners tuning in and close to 350,000 impressions on Facebook and Twitter with 790 social media engagements. We appreciate everyone’s community contributions and will continue to match individual donations.

Pacific Insurance Broker Inc. is proud to once again be a sponsor and supporter of this worthwhile endeavor.

SickKids Foundation Innovators

SickKids Innovators is an exclusive program that engages the next generation of philanthropists to support SickKids Foundation and speedily deploy funds in the areas of most need, such as research, clinical advances and compassionate care.

With our Innovators contributions, we are informed, empowered through stories of courage and hope that play out every day about projects that are SickKids highest priorities and in return, we recommend which project to fund.

Since the program’s inception the Innovators group has donated over $1.5 million in support of a number of projects, such as the Paediatric Advance Care Team, the Medical Psychiatry Alliance and the SickKids Ghana Initiative.

Pacific Insurance Broker Inc. is proud to support the SickKids Foundation Innovators program by staying informed and contributing to ground-breaking projects presented by experts in the field.

Royal Conservatory of Music Student Scholarship Program

Pacific Insurance has partnered with The Royal Conservatory of Music to provide a scholarship to a gifted student at The Glenn Gould School of Music. With the purpose of developing human potential through music and the arts, it was a natural fit to partner with RCM. We are delighted to be working with such a distinguished institution that is dedicated to education and giving back.

Every child deserves the chance to education. The most recent recipient, Anna Wojcik, is a Polish-Canadian soprano studying with Jean MacPhail. She has appeared in various orchestras such as the Toronto Sinfonietta, Camerata Ensemble and the Celebrity Symphony Orchestra.

Pacific Insurance Broker Inc. will continue to offer yearly scholarships to RCM for this wonderful educational opportunity.
