Corporate Social Responsibility is a big part of everything we do.
That’s why Astellas Pharma Canada is the proud partner of Starlight Children’s Foundation™ Canada through its Astellas Aspire initiative.
Astellas Aspire is an employee-driven commitment to help children with health challenges by lifting their spirits at a time when they and their families need it most.
Each year, Astellas employees and Astellas corporate jointly sponsor Starlight Great Escapes™ events and grant as many Starlight Wishes as possible. These activities are an important way for Starlight families to spend fun, quality time together outside of a hospital setting.
Volunteerism is also something that is deeply entrenched in the Astellas culture. All full-time employees have up to five days paid time off each year to use for volunteering with charitable organizations, including Starlight.
