Toronto, October 15, 2010 - Envision IT is excited to announce that we have been named a finalist in the 2010 Microsoft IMPACT Awards, Community Leadership Award Category. The Annual Microsoft IMPACT Awards recognizes Canadian technology partners and their commitment and leadership in the channel community.
"Our annual IMPACT Awards is an opportunity to celebrate top technology partners who have demonstrated their leadership and shown true dedication through their tremendous support and service to customers." - Corinne Sharp, National Director, Canadian Partner Channel, Microsoft Canada
The Community Leadership Award recognizes exceptional technology partners that have made a sustained commitment to society and their communities and can demonstrate the impact of their work. Microsoft looks for specific examples where technology partners have utilized Microsoft-based technologies and incredible innovation to address a key societal issue in Canada.
Envision IT gives back to the community through a number of initiatives, first and foremost being our selection of an annual focus charity. In 2010 we supported the Princess Margaret Ride to Conquer Cancer, with our President Peter Carson and VP Sales & Marketing Peter Mackenzie entering the event and spearheading fundraising activities. In addition, Envision IT is proud to work with numerous non-profit organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, Community Living Toronto, Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario, UNICEF Canada, CAMH, Central Community Support Services Network, The Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion, College of Early Childhood Educators, The Hospital for Sick Children and the Toronto Children’s Aid Society. Through technology we enable these organizations to be more efficient and visible, both within their own organizations, and externally to the community in general.
All the 2010 Microsoft IMPACT Awards Winners and Finalists in each of the award categories will be honoured at a gala event in Toronto on November 9th. Envision IT is a regular winner at the Microsoft IMPACT Awards and other industry awards.
