Argus Properties Ltd.


Welcome to Argus in the Community

Being a part of the community, and developing a sense of connectedness is very important to the employees here at Argus Properties.  We believe that by assisting others with donations, or lending a hand is a way for all of us to be able to improve others’ lives a little step at a time, and become a participant in a community that cares and respects one another.

Each month on the first Friday, the employees at Argus Properties participate in “Jeans Day”, and wear jeans to work.  $5 is donated from each person, and at the end of the year, the money raised is donated to a local charity that the employees of Argus Properties are passionate about.

Argus has also supported the local community by participating in the Adopt-A-Family program each December by providing a Christmas hamper for a family in need.  Food items, along with toys (sometimes hand-made by employees), and other great items are included in this hamper.  To know that we can bring a smile to a family during this special time of year is an amazing gift of its own.  Along with a Christmas hamper, the employees of Argus have also pooled together donations for the Kelowna Community Food Bank to help curb hunger in Kelowna.  The Kelowna Food Bank serves over 1200 families alone over Christmas, and continues this support throughout the year.

Our most recent venture is with UBCO, supporting the Live Case Challenge with $75,000 for the next 5 years.  Students collaborate together, and pitch a business proposal to a company or non-profit in live time, providing solutions in meeting the business challenges faced by the organization.  It is exciting and fulfilling to know that we are supporting the future of business!

Over the years, Argus has supported a variety of charities from disaster relief, medical research, arts and fitness and many other local community groups. Some of the disasters that Argus has supported over the years are the Nepal earthquake (2015), Typhoon Haiyan (Philippines 2013), Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami (2011), Hurricane Sandy (US 2012), Indonesian earthquake (2009) and Hurricane Katrina (US 2005).  We are proud to be sponsors and donators to the Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation, Apple Triathlon, BC Interior Trampoline Society, Kelowna United, Opera Kelowna, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Royal Canadian Legion, just to name a few.  We are also a lifetime, platinum sponsor for Ducks Unlimited that helps conserves Canada's wetlands.

At Argus Properties, we believe that a strong community is developed through the caring efforts, and generosity of people helping people.  Reaching out first on a smaller scale and then to the larger community, nation and world is what connects us all as a humanity.
