Community Support

At Shannex, we believe that good corporate citizenship starts in the community. This means working with community organizations that share in our vision of Leading the Way to Better Living. We are proud to contribute to the important work of the following groups:


Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia

Shannex is delighted to present the Alzheimer Society annual Walk for Memories as the provincial sponsor. The Walk creates public awareness of the impact of Alzheimer's and dementia on individuals, families and caregivers. Many Shannex employees, clients and families participate in the Walk helping to raise awareness for those impacted by Alzheimer's and dementia.

United Way

United Way brings people and organizations together to build vibrant neighbourhoods and strengthen communities. Each year, Shannex and its employees participate in the Day of Giving as well as the fall United Way Campaign.


Mental Health Foundation, Festival of Trees

Shannex is proud to be a presenting sponsor for the Festival of Trees Shannex Holiday Luncheon in support of the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. Shannex is committed to raising awareness and support for mental illness and to ensuring there is a broad understanding, compassion and acceptance for every person affected by it.

Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre

Shannex is proud to support the excellent work of the Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre; an organization dedicated to providing a supportive living and learning facility serving approximately 200 adults and youth with physical and mental health challenges. Each year Shannex commissions work through Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre as part of its Festival of Trees commitment.

Seton Award Luncheon

Shannex is pleased to be a part of the annual Seton Award Luncheon, held in support of The Sisters of Charity. This event raises awareness of the work they do in the community and the funds needed to support these projects across Nova Scotia.
