Nissan Canada Foundation

Celebrating 30 years of giving

Established in 1993, the Nissan Canada Foundation is celebrating 30 years of giving to those in need across the country.

A core tenet of Nissan’s corporate vision is to improve the quality of life in communities in which the automaker operates. Aligned
with Nissan’s three chosen areas of focus: the environment, education, and humanitarian relief; the Nissan Canada Foundation
establishes lasting partnerships ensuring its efforts lead to long-term tangible differences in people’s lives.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Food Banks Mississauga and Habitat for Humanity are long-standing partners of the Foundation. And
with today’s increased cost of living and rising food prices affecting audiences across the country, the Nissan Canada Foundation is
proud to support additional national food partners that are making a difference to alleviate this growing concern.

Life at Nissan

Embracing diversity

At Nissan, we want to do more than just celebrate diversity. We are changing our corporate culture and the way we work to ensure it
is representative of all our employees. We want to make sure each member of the Nissan family feels like they can bring their
authentic self to work. We create opportunities for our employees through networking, executive chats, anniversary celebrations,
employee spotlights, volunteer opportunities, mentorship, donation drives and much more. The goal is to ensure everyone has a
voice, and the ability to shape life at Nissan – together.

focus on supporting the members’ achievements and professional goals through educational events, networking and workplace
celebrations. Since the first BST launched in 2007, Nissan employees have embraced these groups with more participation,
engagement and events every year.
