Giving Back to the Community
Volunteering and giving back to our community is a large part of our philosophy and how we operate. We are proud to offer support to several causes and organizations.
Since its inception in 2006, Canadian K9 has been a proud sponsor of the Michael Cuccione Foundation, helping to support the fight to end Childhood Cancer. In fact, Maela Braaten, the President of Canadian K9 and the umbrella company, group8108 Executive Protection Inc., is a Director-at-Large for the Foundation.
Their research and support for cancer survivors, during and post-treatment, has been instrumental for so many families. Through donations and volunteer work, we have been strong advocates for the Michael Cuccione Foundation, and urge others to join the fight as well.
Vancouver Native Housing Society is an NGO that focuses on providing low-income Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Vancouver with affordable housing. They also have a hotel-art gallery that host Indigenous artists-in-residence. The program was hit hard due to the Covid-19 pandemic and Canadian K9, along with group8108, are proud to support the Vancouver Native Housing Society, as well as Skwachàys Lodge.
To help raise money to keep the artists-in-residence funded, please visit:
Legion Engineered is an apparel line that donates profits to Fight 4 PTSD Awareness, a Veteran's mental health group. With their clothing sale and podcast profits, Legion Engineered helps ensure PTSD support and education is available to those who need it, all while seeking to end ending its stigma.
Because members of our team have served in the RCMP and Canadian Military, Legion Engineered's work to help those with PTSD is another cause that we strongly support.
We love to support local and Canadian companies that take care of our hard-working guards, officers and military personnel. We purchase our tactical boots from the Arrowolf Store, which carries gear specifically designed for law enforcement, security and military personnel. Our favourite boots are the Danner boots, which are comfortable while still being safe and meeting strict standards for tactical gear.
