APM Community Involvement and Sponsorship

As a good corporate citizen, APM is committed to the spirit of community in Prince Edward Island and throughout Atlantic Canada, with special consideration toward the pursuit of excellence and achievement by young people.

We recognize the needs of the communities in which we live and work. From modest in-kind contributions, through donations, employee / volunteer activity to full, major sponsorships, APM proudly supports and promotes a number of events, initiatives and charities both large and small.

The importance of providing inspiration to young people—whether through financial commitment or by encouraging personal development—is deeply embedded in the heart of our culture at APM.

As APM is dedicated to leading by example, some of our community initiatives are detailed below.


APM Congratulates Holland College Hurricanes

APM is the Premier Sponsor of the Holland College Hurricanes and has been rooting for them at every home game. APM congratulates them on their triumph as the 2011 champions of the Atlantic Football League.

This is the first intercollegiate football victory for PEI in over fifty years. The team hosted the championship game on their home field and shut out the University of New Brunswick in a 28-0 game.

CEO Tim Banks is extending sincere congratulations to the team and its management after such a successful season.

IWK Children's Miracle Network

Over the years, a number of APM employees have required the services of the Maritimes’ regional children's hospital, the IWK in Halifax. This prompted a group of employees to undertake a number of initiatives in support of this important regional asset.
Thousands of dollars are raised each year by APM staff through barbeques, flea markets and casual day programs. The amount that is raised by the staff is matched by the company, with the joint donation presented each year at the IWK Telethon.

Confederation Centre of the Arts

APM has been a supporter of the Confederation Centre and its theatre, arts and youth programs since 1998. Additionally, we have been the Major Sponsor of the Charlottetown Festival, Canada's premier showcase of original Canadian theatre and home of Canada's most beloved musical, Anne of Green Gables - The Musical.
The Confederation Centre of the Arts, located in downtown Charlottetown, is a memorial to the founding of our nation and is mandated to promote and preserve Canadian culture and arts.

QEH Foundation

Since its inception, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation has raised more than $45 million through special events, direct mail campaigns, memorial donations and planned gifts. These funds help the hospital purchase medical equipment to provide the finest care available for our community members.

APM is proud to be a continuing sponsor of this important foundation.

PCH Foundation

Recognizing the need for quality health care in our communities, APM continues its sponsorship of the Prince County Hospital Foundation. The foundation raises funds to purchase priority medical equipment for Prince County Hospital, while promoting health awareness throughout local communities.

APM Centre

Opened in 2002, the APM Centre in Cornwall is an athletic arena and community centre for 13 communities located in Queens County, PEI.

By becoming the name sponsor of the building, APM has shown its support for the citizens of these 13 towns and villages, creating a facility which promotes recreation and well being in their community.

International Centre for Clubhouse Development

ICCD is a global resource for communities creating solutions for people with mental illness. They help communities around the world create ICCD Clubhouses, which are community centers that give people with mental illness hope and opportunities to reach their full potential.

Acknowledging the importance of mental health for all community members, APM is pleased to be on board as the first Gold Sponsor for this organization.

Heather Moyse wins Gold in Bobsleigh at Vancouver 2010 Olympics

APM is thrilled to have sponsored Heather’s Olympic journey—she made us proud!

"APM was one of my first sponsors during my first year on the World Cup Bobsleigh circuit and returned as a sponsor for 2008-2009. I am thrilled to be associated with such a successful PEI company and have them as my primary sponsor leading up to the 2010 Olympics," said Heather.

UPEI School of Business

Tim Banks, CEO of APM, and Dr. Roberta MacDonald, Dean of the Business School, led the campaign to generate $6 million in private financial support for the new School of Business Building, which focuses on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship.

Banks announced his own $100,000 pledge to the campaign, and Chancellor Bill Andrew made a private donation of $100,000. The provincial government committed $4 million as part of a $25 million commitment for capital renewal at UPEI over 10 years. The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency contributed $1.69 million to the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship.

Cody Banks Memorial Bursaries

Each year APM presents the Cody Banks Memorial Bursaries to employees or children of employees pursuing post-secondary education.

The bursaries are named for Master Mason and community leader Cody Banks, who believed that education was essential for young people to achieve their fullest potential. Through these bursaries, APM is able to honour Cody's ideals and commitment to his fellow citizens.

UPEI Men's and Women's Basketball Programs

A great example of the pursuit of excellence and personal development is the student-athlete. For that reason, APM is proud to have been a past major sponsor of the UPEI Men's Basketball Team.

The Panthers were Atlantic Conference Men's and Ladies Champions in 2003 and are consistently among the top-ranked squads in the country.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters PEI

The local branch of this national organization has a major fundraiser each year involving a raffle for a summer cottage.

Through its manufactured home division, Landmark Homes, APM has constructed cottages as the major prize for the draw.

Junior Achievers

This program in PEI involves hundreds of volunteers and students developing ideas and business skills. APM has been one of the major sponsors of this organization and Tim Banks, CEO of APM, is a past member of the Board of Governors.

Stratford Soccer Complex

The Town of Stratford is the fastest growing community on PEI, and soccer is the fastest growing sport in Canada. With that in mind, APM’s building supply store, Southport Home Hardware, was excited to get involved in the creation of a soccer complex for the town.

Using its expertise, access to materials and the sweat equity of the Southport Home Hardware staff, a building bee organized by APM resulted in a brand new clubhouse for the soccer complex, making it one of PEI’s premier soccer facilities.


Thyramas Corporation

Thyramas Corporation is a small local charity that funds a summer camp for troubled youths. APM is a strong supporter of this challenging work.

SpellRead P.A.T.

A local business started by two Island women, SpellRead P.A.T. created an innovative method to teach and improve reading skills, particularly for persons with low literacy.

Recognizing the importance of literacy in increasing career opportunities for both adults and children, APM has been providing scholarships for the SpellRead program since 1997.

Lorie Kane/Ronald McDonald Children's Charities Golf Classic

Lorie Kane, who hails from Charlottetown, is one of the world's top women golfers. She also was the recipient of The Order of Canada in 2011. Each year, in support of the Ronald McDonald Children's Charities organization, Lori hosts a golf tournament in her hometown.

 APM is proud to be a founding and continuing sponsor for this event, which over the years has raised thousands of dollars.

The Joyriders

APM recognizes that all members of society deserve opportunities for recreation, social interaction and for personal growth and achievement in spite of limitations. Special needs children can experience adventure on horseback through the Joyriders of PEI.

By supporting the Joyriders, APM has demonstrated their commitment to all members of the community.

Kids Count - The Learning Fund

As governments have reduced spending, responsibility to fund community initiatives has fallen to the private sector. The Learning Fund is an initiative of the Eastern School District of Prince Edward Island that seeks to raise money for programs supplementing the educational experience of local students.

APM made a long-term commitment supporting this initiative to enrich extra-curricular activities for as many young Islanders as possible.

APM's History Displayed at the Sherwood Elementary School Heritage Fair

Fourth grader Samantha Silliphant displayed her project, entitled “APM”, at the Sherwood Elementary School Heritage Fair in Charlottetown, PEI.

APM has operated in Prince Edward Island since 1980, completing thousands of projects across the country—but this is the first time a project had been done on APM.  We are very proud to have been recognized by Samantha and congratulated her on a job well done. Great work Samantha!

Charlottetown Junior "A" APM Abbies

APM has previously been the name sponsor for the Charlottetown entry in the Maritime Junior Hockey League.

APM was proud to support the local ownership and local talent that provided exciting sports entertainment in the Maritimes. In 2003, APM assisted the hockey club in hosting the Royal Bank Cup, a tournament crowning a national Junior Hockey champion.

The Canadian Unity Council (CUC)

This national, non-partisan organization is devoted to examining and promoting the Canadian identity, particularly among Canadian Youth.

Many young Canadians are familiar with the CUC through such programs as Centre for Research and Information on Canada and the Terry Fox Centre in Ottawa. Tim Banks, CEO of APM, has served on the CUC Board of Governors.

Through in-kind contributions, donations, sponsorship and volunteerism, APM has and will continue to support many individuals and community organizations, including but not limited to:
