Derksen in the Community

For over 50 years now Derksen Plumbing & Heating 1984 Ltd. has operated from the strength of its principles, instilled by its founders Frank Derksen and Henry Derksen.

The strength of the company is born from our family values; the mutual trust, respect and cooperation we have with our employees, clients, suppliers and in the diverse community we work in.

For us, giving back to our communities is part of our culture. Our people care about the community and are personally committed to making a difference and giving back through volunteerism, corporate funding and corporate events.

Derksen and ALS

The ALS society will always hold a special place in our heart. No one should go through the pain and suffering so many families have gone through, including ours. We take pride in knowing that with each volunteer hour and each dollar we raise we are helping those in need and, hopefully, making someone's diagnosis a little bit more comfortable and easier to bare.

Derksen Abroad

At Derksen, our commitment to community outreach has gone global.  Since 2011, Derksen Plumbing & Heating 1984 Ltd has teamed up with Canadian charity Live Different to help provide food, clean water and shelter for the people of Neuvo Renacer, a small community within Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

In February 2015, a team from Derksen Plumbing & Heating 1984 Ltd traveled to Neuvo Renacer to help build three homes for very deserving families facing the daily challenges of extreme poverty.  While building, our team had the opportunity to learn firsthand the day to day struggles they face and their tireless perseverance towards sustainable development.

Currently, Derksen Plumbing & Heating 1984 Ltd is sponsoring Live Different in Cap Hatien, Haiti where the construction of additional classrooms at the local school is taking place. The project initiative is to help ensure more local children receive an education.

Live Different continues to assist local community leaders within the area. Together we can all affect change. We encourage you to visit their website to learn more about Live Different or connect with them by email at As an alternative method you can email Kendra Jackson or call 204-944-3445.
