Giving Back to Our Community
Actions speak louder than words, and Blackbird Security is committed to improving the diverse communities we serve by creating a culture clients, employees and management are proud to belong to. We believe security companies like ours have a leading role to play in creating a better society for all. We achieve this goal by working to uplift marginalized communities across Canada, alongside our support of organizations such as the Breakfast Club of Canada, ALS Canada, and Covenant House. Here are some of the ways we support these invaluable organizations.
Breakfast Club of Canada
The Breakfast Club of Canada ensures all children have access to full nutritious meals in order to be fit and prepared to gain an education. All Canadian children deserve an equal chance at success; however, science has proven that learning is much more difficult on an empty stomach. Breakfast Club of Canada believes that a healthy breakfast can change a life, a journey, and a society.
Breakfast Club of Canada makes a sustainable impact on children by working hand in hand with every school’s community. This allows for a more dynamic, nourishing environment, and a greater sense of belonging, which greatly contributes to their success.
Blackbird Security has sponsored 2500 breakfasts to children throughout Canada, specifying 50% of this support towards children in rural indigenous communities. In addition, Blackbird Security has donated 50 hours of security services to the Breakfast Club of Canada’s silent auction.

ALS Canada & ALS Society of BC
This year Blackbird Security has chosen to be a Corporate Donor of ALS Society of BC, as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a tragic disease that can impact all people – regardless of their ethnicity, gender or identity. The equipment, medication and lifestyle changes needed to support ALS patients are an ongoing and heavy burden for patients and families. We are proud to provide financial aid to continue the much-needed ALS research and to support families during this difficult time.
Blackbird Security’s corporate donation for this program will be split; 40% towards research (ALS Canada) and 60% to patient services in BC (ALS Society of BC).

Canada is facing a crisis in youth homelessness. Across our country, thousands of youth find themselves without a home. As frontline security providers, homeless and troubled youth are people we regularly see in our day-to-day roles. Fortunately, Covenant House Vancouver exists to meet their basic needs, providing a nourishing meal, a shower, clean clothes, medical attention and a safe place to sleep.
Covenant House provides critical services for homeless and at-risk youth ages 16 to 24 and supports these young people in achieving brighter futures. We are proud to provide Covenant House Vancouver with free security services at special events to help reduce their operational costs and ensure more resources are allocated to providing their core services.
