iQmetrix was a proud Silver Sponsor of We Day Vancouver, held on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Rogers Arena. iQmetrix staff volunteered at We Day Vancouver as well as at We Day Winnipeg, Nov. 23, helping out with the Honored Guest and Seating Teams.
Organized by Free The Children, We Day is a series of one-day youth rallies taking place in cities across Canada. We Day events pack stadiums full of young people to celebrate the accomplishments of their peers who are making a difference in their communities and around the world. We Day also brings celebrity speakers and performers in to inspire attendees and show youth that "it is cool to care."

Since the first We Day in 2007, over 160,000 people have attended We Day events across North America. "We Day has become the movement of our time," writes Free The Children, "inspiring thousands of youth and building a community of young people dedicated to social change."
“Our company is happy to support Free The Children because we feel the work they do to affect change at home and overseas aligns with our own corporate values,” says iQmetrix President and CEO Christopher Krywulak. “All corporations should contribute to community-building initiatives; we support events like We Day because we believe in reaching out, taking part and giving back.”
