SIGA VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

SIGA employees volunteer for many causes demonstrating

SIGA’s commitment to “Building Success” in our

communities. SIGA has continued supporting community

initiatives by developing an employee-owned and driven

volunteer program. The program includes coordination of

the Volunteer Program Committees at each SIGA location.

The program was rolled out during 2011 and 2012 to our

casino sites including our Central Office. In 2015-2016,

SIGA’s employee enrolment rate was at 28% of SIGA’s

1,875 employees.

SIGA casinos partnered with organizations like Habitat

for Humanity, Salvation Army, Food Banks, Meals on

Wheels and community schools to name a few. A

partnership with the Heart & Stroke Foundation Big Bike

saw close to 150 SIGA volunteers ride and raise money for

the Heart & Stroke Foundation. All those involved with this

initiative are very excited about increasing SIGA’s presence

in their communities through volunteerism. We are very

proud of “Sharing Success” through our Community

Investment programs.
