RGA Life Reinsurance Company of Canada

RGA

RGA Life Reinsurance Company of Canada, winner of the 2019 Mobilization Solidaires (999 employees or less).

Since 2002, the RGA Life Reinsurance Company of Canada has never stopped showing its dedication to Centraide and, as a result, to the Greater Montreal community. With a participation rate of nearly 80%, the RGA campaign stands out year after year through its employees’ impressive dedication. Foosball, ping-pong, and miniature golf tournaments along with auctions and draws were all great opportunities to raise everyone’s awareness about Centraide!

On top of the resounding success of these activities is the incredible involvement of the company’s management team. In addition to fully matching employee donations, the company gives an extra $200 for all Leadership donations ($1,200 or more) and offers various participation prizes.

In 2018, the company’s president and CEO travelled from Toronto to Montreal to help launch the campaign and show her support for Centraide. The Montreal and Toronto offices have developed a friendly rivalry in a competition that this year focused on increasing donation amounts. This new employee mobilization approach was a great success in terms of increasing both the campaign participation rate and donations. 

The Solidaires Mobilization is awarded to a company that has run an outstanding employee and/or Leadership campaign that is organized and structured and gets the entire organization involved in the Centraide cause.
