Local Community

Local community programs McDonald’s® is proud to give back to the communities we serve. Whether it’s supporting a local sports league, helping talented young athletes, or taking steps to improve our neighbourhoods, our support reflects our commitment to our communities.

A valued community partnerApproximately 80% of McDonald's restaurants in Canada are independently owned and operated by a local McDonald's franchisee. Your local McDonald's franchisee may be involved in programs supporting local schools, senior citizens' groups, safety awareness campaigns, literacy and scholarship programs, environmental efforts and athletic teams.

Find out more about the programs your restaurant supports. Visit your local McDonald's restaurant, check out their Community Board – or simply ask.

McHappy Day®McHappy Day® is a national fundraiser. It’s when McDonald's® restaurants across Canada and their communities, employees, customers and special guests raise money together to help children in need across Canada.

Supporting Community GrowthEvery day, we provide countless benefits, to our many customers, our more than 80,000 employees, and the communities we live in. McDonald's offers employment and career opportunities, support for charitable organizations and tax revenues for public services. Each McDonald's restaurant represents between 50 and 100 jobs to a community.
