Below is a listing of some of the community events and charities we are proud to be a part of.
IHG Green Engage
You've probably noticed that green is everywhere these days--in the news, politics, fashion, and even technology. While it's easy to get overwhelmed, it's also simple to begin making a positive impact. At Holiday Inn & Suites Ottawa Kanata we have a dedicated team of employees and managers looking for efficient and effective ways for our own hotel to “Go Green”. IHG Green Engage is our comprehensive online sustainability system. It tells our hotel what we can do to be a 'green' hotel and gives us the means to conserve resources – by measuring, managing and reporting on our hotel’s energy, water and waste consumption, as well as benchmarking and the ability to create action plans to track progress.
Kanata Food Cupboard
Our hotel is a proud supporter of the Kanata Chamber of Commerce annual “Food for Thought” event bringing the area’s top purveyors of food and beverage together to raise money for the Kanata Food Cupboard, providing families in our local community with non perishable food services throughout the year. Our donation of volunteer time, facility use, and product contribute greatly to this invaluable cause.
This year our staff has gone above and beyond to volunteer their own time working during our onsite Holiday Parties for their coat check requirements. Donations will be collected for these services and passed along as a cash donation to the Kanata Food Cupboard to assist with their holiday time requirements.
We will also be providing gift to children in need through our Angel Tree program. Organized by the Kanata Food Cupboard to service our local community our staff will be providing gifts for 50 children who otherwise would have a much less joyful Christmas morning.
As a condition of attending our own staff holiday party we have always asked for a non-perishable food donation. In the past our staff has been so generous that we decided to collect these food donation all year round and are now able to contribute monthly to the Kanata Food Cupboard with donations received from the staff in our cafeteria.
National Denim Day
Each May our hotel staff generously donates towards Breast Cancer Research by participating in the National Denim Day. Additionally we prepare a bake sale for our hotel lobby to assist with the fundraising for this important cause.
Terry Fox Run
Each September our hotel staff walks, bike and runs for a cure anywhere from 5km to 10km while raising money to support Cancer Research.
Miscellaneous Events & Charities
Throughout the year we are pleased to support a multitude of charity events and local requests for prizing by donating hotel services and product.
