PQA believes in corporate responsibility and is committed to giving back to the community by volunteering, supporting social initiatives, fundraising, providing scholarships for students and sponsoring local community sports and events.
PQA has been a platinum sponsor of Fredericton’s Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival for five consecutive years, and is proud to support events that unite the city in a positive and energizing way.
PQA employees fundraise and participate in local charity events year round, typically raising tens of thousands of dollars for programs and charities such as the Fredericton Food Bank Angel Tree, the New Brunswick Curling Association, Movember, V-Reds Minor Hockey, Canadian Blood Services Blood Donor Clinics, Go-Go Gymnastics, the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and many more.
PQA also takes an active role in encouraging youth to explore careers in the information technology sector. As a way to aid students who are interested in having careers in the computer science field, PQA offers three entrance scholarships for students enrolling in the University of New Brunswick’s computer science program. PQA is also in partnership with the University of New Brunswick’s computer science co-op program.
PQA also strives to minimize our impact on the environment. Employees are encouraged to be environmentally conscious in and out of the workplace by recycling, printing less, promoting green products and more. For example, PQA annually earmarks $1.00 for every Christmas e-card sent to clients and partners during the holiday season as part of our “Give Back Campaign”, held before the holiday season where PQA employees participate in fundraising activities to raise money for local families in need.
