Overview

Our vision is to positively impact the communities in which we live and work. We achieve this not only through the projects we take on but also by supporting local organizations, hosting and sponsoring tech meetups, and sponsoring conferences and initiatives that help our communities grow.

Supporting our Kids

Quartech is committed to giving back to our community by sponsoring various organizations that have a positive effect on our children. Here are just a few organizations that Quartech has supported over the years.

KidStart

KidStart recruits and trains caring adults to coach vulnerable kids ages 6+ through the game of life. The young people KidStart helps may be struggling with problems at home, complications at school, or problems with peers or in the community. The mentors encourage young people to develop their own interests, support learning and skill building, and open doors so they can discover new, engaging activities in the community.

CFAX Santas Anonymous

CFAX Santas Anonymous helps to put food on the table and gifts under the tree for thousands of children across Greater Victoria. Quartech purchased and decorated our Christmas tree with Santas Anonymous ornamental gift tags. Our staff could pick a tag and purchase a gift on the tag for a special child.
Youth Sports

Youth Sports

Quartech is a proud sponsor of local youth sports. Quartech selects teams or individuals from submissions from our staff’s children. The Victoria Racquet Club Minor Hockey Association was the winner of the Spring 2019 Youth Sports Sponsorship. Previous recipients of the sponsorship have included Island Fire Football Association, a competitive sport climber through the Boulders Climbing Gym, and the Victoria Mosquito A Eagles youth baseball team.

Donations for Computer Equipment

Donations for Computer Equipment

Throughout the year, Quartech offers gently-used computer equipment to staff members in exchange for donations to a charity of their choice. Charities have included Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, Covenant House, SPCA, and Canuck’s for Kids Fund.

Quartech runs two tech meetup groups: Quartech Vancouver Tech Talks and Microsoft Dynamics Meetup of BC.  We also sponsor other local tech meetups,
