We reach out to communities where our customers and associates live and work.

Staples® is a proud supporter of programs and initiatives that encourage education, build entrepreneurship and preserve the environment.

Mission
To establish Staples Canada as a socially responsible employer and retailer of choice by creating a responsible corporate environment in which associates, employees and customers are equally committed to supporting, enhancing and sustaining our communities.

Our Vision
To improve the quality of life in Canadian communities by continuously investing in sustainability and being socially responsible in every aspect of our business.


Education: We're helping to endorse the value of education in our communities across Canada with corporate programs such as the Staples School Supply Drive - which donates products to local schools.

Environment: Staples Canada proudly supports organizations committed to the preservation and protection of our environment. Partnering with and sponsoring organizations such as WWF and the Recycling Council of Canada allows us to maintain strong community relations as well as support causes and initiatives that are important to us. Staples Canada also operates various in-house community and environmental programs, such as Recycle for Education and Earth Day Canada.

Entrepreneurship: Entrepreneurial spirit is an important part of our business culture. We are proud to support many new business and education partners, such as Ashoka Canada, that share our passion for building and cultivating entrepreneurship in Canada
