TORONTO — On Nov. 16, Toyota Canada announced the recipients of its national Toyota Cars For Good™ program, recognizing local organizations fostering inclusion through physical accessibility and breaking down barriers to movement in communities across Canada.
Three Canadian organizations, Manitoba Wheelchair Sport Association (Winnipeg, Manitoba), Power To Be (Victoria, B.C.) and The Kamloops and District Society for People in Motion (Kamloops, B.C.), were each selected by a panel of judges to be the recipients of a brand new Toyota vehicle, including any modifications required for physical accessibility (each valued at up to $70,000), to further support the incredible impact each local charity has in bringing forward better mobility for all.
Three additional organizations, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ontario (Scarborough, Ontario), Ability New Brunswick (Fredericton, New Brunswick) and Opal III Fredericton Respite Services (Fredericton, New Brunswick), each received $5,000 to recognize their valuable efforts toward fostering inclusion through physical accessibility in their communities.
“As Toyota moves toward becoming a global mobility company, we are proud to support the work being done by so many local Canadian organizations to break down the barriers to movement and foster a more inclusive society for people in their communities,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Toyota Canada. “Today, we are recognizing the work of six of these Canadian organizations by providing them with either a new Toyota vehicle or a financial contribution.”
