Our 40th Anniversary Gift to our Communities!


In honour of our 40th anniversary this year, All Weather Windows wanted to give back to the causes that meant the most to our employees. Each month, for the past 4 months, employees from across Canada submitted entries explaining why their selected charity should receive $1000. Entries were judged based not only on creativity but also a compelling story as to why the organization’s work was so important in their life.

We are pleased to say, that at the conclusion of this initiative, we have donated $24,000 to charities around the world on behalf of our employees.

Here is the full list of organizations that received $1000 each:
