COMDA Cheque

Our Story

COMDA is a privately-owned, Canadian company.  Since 1972, we have been manufacturing and marketing promotional products directly to more than 60,000 business customers throughout North America to help them grow their companies and create goodwill with their customers.

Sadly, cancer is an evil that touches all of our lives, and many of us at COMDA have had direct experience with its devastation. Since 2013 we have been motivated to act to help conquer this pervasive disease. Throughout the year we hold several events that raise awareness and funds to support cancer research. Since our first event, we have donated over $270,541 to the Canadian Cancer Society, earning recognition as the Number One Donor in Ontario.

On September 11, 2018 we hosted our 4th annual Conquering Cancer golf tournament at Red Crest Golf Club where, with the help of many of our many valued employees and vendor partners, we raised over $67,000 from this event alone.

About The Canadian Cancer Society

Canada’s longest standing and most trusted cancer charity.

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

Cancer research in Canada and around the world continues to move us closer to the day when most cancers will be curable and others will be managed as chronic diseases like diabetes and asthma. Today, more than 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis. This is a great improvement over the 1940s when the 5-year survival was about 25%. As our knowledge grows, we will make even greater progress against cancer.
