Engaging Our Employees

Strength in Our Community


At OMISTA, we understand that strong, sustainable communities are good for people and good for business.  We contribute to the community through the financial services we provide, the decisions we make, and the dollars we put back into the communities we serve.

People want to work for responsible companies and feel that they are part of a larger social effort. We support and encourage employee volunteerism in our communities. Volunteering can create stronger connections with employees. 

Our corporate commitment to helping build sustainable communities is supported by OMISTA employees.  They are making good things happen in our neighbourhoods. 

"Working for an organization that not only allows me to volunteer but encourages me to volunteer is wonderful. Being able to volunteer at my children's school teaches them the importance of giving back to your school and your community. I am very proud to be part of the OMISTA team."
- Chantal Calvert, Commercial Account Manager

"I am part of the Meal Ministry at my church. Every couple months we meet to make casseroles, soup, and some sort of dessert. These meals are often frozen in individual portions. If someone in our parish knows of anyone who is lonely, sick, new to our community or just had a baby, they are welcome to come and take what they need and deliver food to these folks. It is a wonderful afternoon with a terrific group of ladies sharing a love for cooking and a spirit to help someone else. I have created a bond with ladies in my church that I didn't know very well up until we started this ministry.

"For us it was an enlightening experience to see the community come together to make such a big improvement in the area. The number of volunteers for a Saturday was astounding!! It makes us even more proud to work for a company that is so committed to the betterment of the community where we live."
- Curtis Hebert and Taran Greene

"Touched on a lot of our CSP pillars."

"I became a part of the Brokering Wishes team as a way to give back to my community in a meaningful way. Children are so innocent and unfortunately some are faced with challenges they should not have to endure. If I in some small way could help ease their burden I wanted to be part of that."
- Tom Saulnier, Business Development Manager, committee member for Brokering Wishes NB

“As a cat lover I believe that every cat deserves the chance to find a home.  I believe in helping those who can’t help themselves.”  -
