Local Engineering Firm Builds Support for Hospital’s Greatest Needs

Western University

Chorley + Bisset donated $40,000 to Western University for their Building Tomorrow Campaign on our 40th Anniversary in 2013. The campaign raises funds for Western to upgrade their facilities, enhance sustainability features on campus, and add specialized spaces for research and innovation.

Habitat for Humanity

Chorley + Bisset employees were proud to be able to participate in a day of building hope for our local community. A group of 10 employees traded in their pens and pencils for a tool belt and got to work on a Habitat For Humanity work site a short distance from the office. The weather was beautiful and a great time was had by all working up a sweat for a good cause! We look forward to participating again in future… Keep up the great work Habitat for Humanity!

Bisset's Best

John Bisset has led a team of employees participating in a dedicated 10K run to support the Make A Wish Foundation of Southwestern Ontario. The Make A Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. Over the last 10 years, the event has raised more than $285,000. Our goal for this year is to raise $20,000.

Thames Valley Children's Centre

Through sponsored canoe trips, George Chorley raised more than $250,000 for the Children's Centre. Originally associated with the Bunny Bundle canoe trip, the annual event evolved into the Chorley/Gonder canoe trip, a corporate fundraiser organized by George through the company.

Christmas Toy Drive

Our staff donate toys for the Annual Salvation Army Toy Drive. Chorley + Bisset Ltd. matches employee contributions.


Programmed employee charitable contributions annually distribute over $10,000 to about 20 registered charities.

Corporate Sponsorships

The firm has recently made major financial contributions to sponsor a room at Thames Valley Children’s Centre, plus a seminar room in the new Lassonde Pavilion at the University of Western Ontario. As well, we have established an annual $1,000 financial award to an undergraduate student in the UWO Engineering faculty.
