Community

We embrace
and champion
positive change

Transforming industries is about more than creating industry-leading technology for global clients.

Our goal is to keep our impact positive and our footprint small, while engaging and supporting our local community in the following key areas: education, sport, environment, and equality.

  • Education

    Finger Food is a strong supporter in the promotion of STEM subjects in our local schools.

    We developed the SPRK Lightning Lab Education Platform, which makes coding and programming approachable and fun for school-aged children.

    Finger Food worked closely with Sphero, providing the design and development of the mobile app.

    Understanding that not every child is fortunate enough to get their hands on a Sphero SPRK, our CTO Trent Shumay and CEO Ryan Peterson decided to donate 180 SPRKs to the Coquitlam school district and are making similar donations to other districts across B.C.

    We have also worked closely with B.C. school districts to develop core curriculum that teaches and encourages students to learn coding and technology.

    In addition, Finger Food has made a $25k annual commitment to School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) to help implement a programming initiative for K-12 students. We continue to advocate to other companies on behalf of school districts to secure additional funding and support. With the contributions and involvement of the broader tech community, we are confident that it will become a world-class program.

    We are also a supporter of SD43 for the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program.

  • Sport

    Finger Food encourages excellence, hard work, and teamwork across every aspect of our business; sport is a perfect example of these attributes.

    It is for this reason that we are proud to be a sponsor of the Canadian Fencing Federation. We provide ongoing support for the Canadian Women’s Foil National Team. The CFF is a non-profit, amateur sports association and is the national governing body of fencing.

    It includes ten provincial fencing associations, which in turn represent eighty local clubs from coast to coast. Its mandate is to establish, develop and support fencing in Canada and to represent Canada on the international scene.

    In 2016, Canadian Women’s Fencing Team member Eleanor Harvey made her Olympic debut in Rio and placed 7th in the world, defeating one of the world’s highest ranked fencers.

  • Environment

    Finger Food believes businesses should both self-regulate and benefit their communities and the environment.

    We were one of the first companies in Canada to achieve Carbon Positive Status, and we are strong advocates for responsible business practices.

    We have committed to offset 3 times the company's Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions annually through an externally accredited company, and to offset all employee households.

    We have partnered with local organizations, Carbon Free Group and Offsetters, to help fund conservation and sustainability projects across Canada and the world.

    As part of our Carbon Management Strategy in 2016, we contributed to the Quadra Island Forestland Conservation Project that enabled the conservation of 417.9 hectares of forestland on Quadra Island which would have otherwise been logged or converted to vacation home developments.

  • Equality

    Finger Food is an advocate for diversity, equity, and respect for all people.

    We support equality for all people regardless of race, colour, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, sex, veteran status, marital or parental status, disability, gender identity or expression.

    We are proud to work with numerous not-for-profit organizations promoting equality and diversity, including Soroptimist International of the Tri-Cities (Diginista Girls Coding Club), Women In Tech World, Women Who Code, and more.
