May 7, 2015 Canada’s seniors are not getting the health care they deserve — not even close. Our system was created over half a century ago to meet the needs of a much younger population and we have not adapted to meet the growing number of aging Canadians. The Canadian Medical Association and an alliance of partner organizations have decided to do something about it.
Working with STC, CMA has developed a new campaign titled Demand A Plan and rolled it out through web banners, print and broadcast. STC also worked with the CMA’s social media and web partners to create a website to engage physicians and the Canadian public in this very important initiative.
Partners For Discovery
The Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation’s (TGWHF) Partners for Discovery is a special donor communication program focused on supporters who have made cumulative gifts and/or pledges of $1 million or more.
To commemorate the fifth anniversary and to acknowledge the generosity of the Partners and Corporations, STC designed and produced a 160-page case bound book that featured portraits of members created by world-renowned photographer Onnig Cavoukian.
The book also included information on the thirteen areas of care the University Health Network provides and highlighted the 23 World Firsts they have achieved since 1922.
“The book was a HUGE hit – I’ve been hearing nothing but rave reviews!! You are an amazing team to work with and I hope we’ll get the opportunity to work together again!!”

Women ask Federal Leaders “Are you Up for Debate?”
Organizations across Canada ask federal party leaders to commit to a debate on women in the upcoming election
Ottawa November 4, 2014 An alliance of 100 organizations from across the country has called for a federal election debate focused on women in 2015. Speaking at a morning press conference on Parliament Hill, YWCA Canada, the Native Women’s Association of Canada and Oxfam Canada said women’s rights must be an election issue, and called on all federal parties to make meaningful commitments to change women’s lives for the better, in Canada and abroad.
“What works for women works for Canada,” said Paulette Senior, CEO of YWCA Canada. “The first and only federal leaders’ debate on women took place thirty years ago. It’s long past time for the second one. For many women Canada is a better country than in 1984, but we haven’t achieved equality, and certainly not for all women.”
