Justin Chan

Founder

What are you most passionate about?
I started my first social project in 2016, Homeless in Waterloo. It is a platform that humanizes homelessness by sharing the stories, dreams, and passions of those experiencing homelessness in our community. I am so passionate about building relationships with everyone in our community, particularly those who are vulnerable or experiencing some sort of adversity. Not so coincidentally, that is what The Community Company is all about.

What do you do outside of this project?
After graduating in 2016 from the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics, I worked at Blue North Strategies for three years, providing strategy work for many of North America’s largest charities. As of September 2019, I am pursuing The Community Company full-time.

Outside of work, I play rec-league basketball (we are in the worst division). I also have experience performing improv and stand-up comedy professionally. I like to do a bit of everything.

Graphic Designer & Artist

What are you most passionate about?
My passion is bringing people’s imaginations to life. I loved this project because it allowed me to really get to know someone and make the perfect design for them. Art has always been my favourite language and I love to communicate it with people.

What do you do outside of this project?
I just graduated Conestoga college for visual merchandising and I have learned so much in the past two years. I am saving money at the moment so I can continue my education at OCAD for advertising next fall. In my spare time I love to surround my self with nature and paint all day!

Co-created designs alongside: Brandy, Tiffany, Elisa, Sam, Andrew, and Jillian.
