Giving Back to The Local Community
Pillar IP believes in the importance of contributing back to our local community. We are not just an Intellectual Property boutique agency – we want to support and uplift people, to change their situations for the better.
This is why we strive to be involved in our community as much as we can, by volunteering, sponsoring and participating in the community organizations and charity programs we believe in.
Michael Tayler – Olympic Kayaker
Pillar IP is proud to sponsor excellence; particularly when excellence resides locally!
We believe in giving back to our community, and helping amateur athletes reach their desired goals; be their Olympic dreams or otherwise, is one way we are proud of contributing.
We are tremendously proud to be a sponsor of our local Olympian, Michael Tayler, in his kayaking journey for the past eight years.
Michael is 30 years old and competes in the Olympic sport of Canoe/Kayak Slalom, a dynamic sport where athletes race down Whitewater rapids through a series of slalom gates. Michael began kayaking at the young age of eight through a week-long summer camp.
He has participated in the 2012 London Olympics, 2016 Rio Olympics, and is expected to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics that has been postponed to August, 2021.
A sponsor since 2013, we are excited to see what the future Olympic has in store for Michael.
- 2016 Rio Olympics
- 2017 Canoe Slalom Canadian National Championships
- 2020 Tokyo Olympics (Postponed to August 2021 due to COVID-19)
Every community has children, the ultimate leaders of our future!
Christie Lake Kids
Christie Lake Kids is a charity organization providing youths the opportunity to participate in sports, recreation and life skills building programs.
Having been around since 1922, the organization now has over 23 programs – all aimed to give children living under the poverty line an enriching experience they may otherwise not be able to afford. Over the past 99 years, Christie Lake Kids has touched the lives of many.
At Pillar IP, we believe that every child can enhance the lives of others and deserves the chance to become our future leaders. We’ve been a proud supporter of the events and activities of Christie Lake Kids for over 10 years.
All programing is 100% funded by community giving and helps disadvantaged children in our community develop physical, social and character skills.

Helping our furry friends in our community!
Have a soft spot for our furry four-legged canine friends? We sure do.
We love and encourage dogs in our offices! We frequently support, donate and spay-it-forward to not-for-profit organizations dedicated to rescuing dogs. Finding them safe, permanent and suitable homes through adoption, advocacy and education, these organizations provide our furry friends the help they need.
