We also have full, private, on-site shower facilities, as well as lockers and bicycle storage.
We have teams participating in events like the Vancouver Sun Run and the Aga Khan Foundation World Partnership Walk. In the summer, conquering the Grouse Grind is also a regular team event for many of our people. Our Social Committee also organizes many events including Halloween pumpkin carving, Easter Egg hunts, Friday lunch BBQs on our sunny deck, and all you can eat sushi lunches.
We strongly believe in giving back to the community, and we donate to charities such as the United Way and the Aga Khan Foundation.
