Through the Foundation, Medavie is focused on developing relationships that promote long-term lasting impacts in support of healthy living, adolescent mental health and families impacted by post-traumatic stress.

We work to establish proactive longer-term relationships with like-minded organizations that are well known and well respected in the communities where we do business. These well-managed organizations, either as direct recipients of Medavie funding or as joint contributors to a recipient program, will share a commitment to our core causes.

These relationships generally last between three and five years and have a clear plan to detail how the program will continue to be sustainable beyond this timeframe. Our funding focuses on programs with specific measurable outcomes to make a significant impact for those affected and their families.

When considering which organizations to partner with, we consider the following:

  • Vision, Mission and Values
  • Governance – accountability, board membership and fiscal management
  • Alignment with core causes – adolescent mental health, post-traumatic stress or healthy living
  • Geographic region
  • Community relationships
  • Reputation in the community

Our Mission is to Improve the Wellbeing of Canadians.

Medavie is a health company that oversees Medavie Blue Cross and Medavie Health Services. Together, we’re bringing Canadians better health and access to care.
