The Aviva Community Fund is an annual competition created to inspire local or national ideas for positive changes within communities across Canada. Individual Canadians or charitable organizations can submit an idea for a cause within their community that they feel passionate about and then become actively involved in making change happen. The top ideas, chosen by Canadians, have a chance to share in $1 million.

Aviva partnered with select organizations in the weeks before the competition to help promote the campaign. Aviva donated $1 to the Canadian Cancer Society for every Like generated through the Society’s social media promotion of the Aviva Community Fund.

Aviva is one of the leading property and casualty insurance groups in Canada, providing home, automobile and business insurance and premier claims service to more than 3 million customers nationally.

Their 3,000 employees work with thousands of independent brokers and small to medium-sized businesses in communities all across Canada.
