GIVING BACK

IT/IQ recognizes that we are all responsible for the communities and environment in which we live, work and play. In 2007, IT/IQ launched a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program to give back to the community that has supported our success, and to encourage a positive impact on our environment, communities and the people we work with.

United Way Lower Mainland

IT/IQ has been a strong supporter of the United Way of the Lower Mainland since 2012, when IT/IQ’s president, Feras Elkhalil, joined the United Way Cabinet, representing the technology sector. A large percentage of IT/IQ’s charitable donation dollars are put it into the UW, supporting programs in our community. Our team has contributed both financially and through volunteerism on an annual basis to several of the organization’s worthy causes.
