Land 
Acknowledgment

We wish to acknowledge the land where KPM Power operates. For thousands of years, this has been the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. We are thankful to be able to work and live in these territories, and to the many Nations of Indigenous People and their ancestors who have cared for this land. 

Land acknowledgment is just the first step toward recognizing the impacts of our colonialist history and the detrimental effects done by settlers to Indigenous communities.  KPM Power recognizes and supports the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Truth and Reconciliation of Canada’s 94 Calls to Action, and is committed to continuous learning and application of these actions in our work.

KPM Power chooses to be a difference maker in its community and strives to be a leader in Corporate Responsibility.

KPM Power in the Community

KPM Power chooses to be a difference maker in its community and strives to be a leader in Corporate Responsibility.

We believe every individual deserves the right to the same opportunities for personal and professional development.

We feel it all starts with removing the barriers to affordable access to food, shelter and education.

KPM Power is committed to do its part by supporting various initiatives and community organizations who share KPM Power's mission to close these gaps, especially within marginalized and underrepresented groups, so that every individual gets an opportunity to reach their potential.

In 2021, KPM Power created the KPM Power Bursary for two 1st and 2nd year, female students requiring financial assistance, that have demonstrated community leadership, providing them with a $10,000 a year bursary at the Lassonde School of Engineering at York University. KPM Power has also provided and committed future financial support to Lassonde's K2I Academy, which focuses on equity-focused programming that supports underrepresented youth in STEM, including the Helen Carswell STEAM Program.

In addition, KPM Power is proudly a past and continuous supporter of several other amazing organizations that are making tremendous impacts in our communities, including Women's Habitat, Anduhyaun, Jean Augustine Centre, Daily Bread Food Bank, and FoodShare.
