Magnus takes part in La grande guignolée des médias - 2015
La grande guignolée des medias is a food drive that has been held annually in Québec since 2001. The organization’s goal is to help the less fortunate by promoting mutual cooperation and sharing. Its mission was without a doubt accomplished during the 15th edition of the event that took place on December 3rd, 2015. Together, participants raised $2.3 million dollars, which is $600 000 more than last year.
For the third time, Magnus employees, as a group, braved the cold to volunteer their time and energy for this great cause. Together, with their usual friendly smiles and effervescent team spirit (one of our core values), they managed to raise more than $6900. We are very proud to have contributed to the success of this charity event and look forward to future events.
Magnus joins the fight against prostate cancer!
November was prostate cancer awareness month at Magnus.
In order to raise funds for the campaign, designers from Sumesur created three types of limited edition accessories: ties, bowties, and handkerchiefs. The same material was used to make each item and all proceeds were donated to local cancer research foundations.
Denis Pichet, President and CEO of Magnus, contributed to the campaign by buying an item for each employee.

Many other suggested ideas will be implemented within the company as well.
