In 2017, Fairware became a Certified Living Wage Employer. We recognize that paying a living wage is a long-term investment in community economic prosperity. We all benefit when we reduce poverty in our communities.
We are proud to send a team member each year to participate in Clif Bar Foundation’s In Good Company, an incredible program that brings people from great businesses together to contribute capacity building work to communities in need.
Fairware continues to have a long term commitment to the Vancouver Street Soccer League (VSSL) through volunteer hours, donations of money and product. VSSL is a volunteer-run organization which reaches out to individuals who have been homeless, are currently homeless, or are at risk of homelessness, as well as individuals who feel marginalized within their communities, or are recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. We address these issues through inclusivity and soccer – believing we can enhance all of our lives through the principles of fair play, community building, supportive partnerships, and health and safety.
We are invested in growing the positive impact that sport and community have on the lives of people right here in our own neigbourhood. We have hired players from VSSL to work at Fairware which, in part, has led us to formulate an ongoing social hiring policy.
