TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns
Mikey On Board
As part of the Mikey On Board program, all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Woodbridge & Vaughan moving trucks are equipped with a MIKEY defibrillator and their drivers and staff, have been trained to use a MIKEY.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading killer of Canadians. Over 10% of occurrences happen in public and victims who are not revived within 3-5 minutes usually die. Having MIKEYs on TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® vehicles increase the chances of making one accessible when the unexpected happens.
Other Mikey Network programs include: Mikey’s Kids – The Mikey at Home Program, The Mikey’s Young at Heart School Defibrillator Program, Mikey On the Go and Mikey Cops Are Tops.

BELL LET'S TALK DAY
In September 2010, Bell Let’s Talk began a new conversation about Canada’s mental health. At that time, most people were not talking about mental illness. But the numbers spoke volumes about the urgent need for action. Millions of Canadians, including leading personalities engaged in an open discussion about mental illness, offering new ideas and hope for those who struggle, with numbers growing every year.
As a result, institutions and organizations large and small in every region received new funding for access, care and research, from Bell Let’s Talk and from governments and corporations that have joined the cause. Bell's total donation to mental health programs now stands at $79,919,178.55 and we are well on our way to donating at least $100 million through 2020.

DAY OF MOURNING
Every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the thousands of workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents.
We also honour the many families and friends who have been deeply affected by these tragedies.
Every worker has the right to return home safe and sound at the end of each workday.
By working together – with employers, workers and our health and safety partners – we can prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur.
