Nissan gives back to local communities with more than 500 volunteer hours and 
event sponsorships 
- 20 years of support for The Scott Mission ensures kids can camp each summer - 
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 10, 2013 /CNW/ - The Nissan Canada Foundation celebrated 
its 20(th) anniversary by extending its long partnership with The Scott 
Mission on Friday with more than 80 Nissan Canada employees volunteering their 
day at the 20(th) annual Nissan Day at the Scott Mission's Camp in Caledon, 
Ontario. 
Every year, Nissan Canada employees are encouraged to give back to the 
community and help get the Scott Mission's 100-acre camp ready to provide a 
place for underprivileged children to learn important social and life skills 
in a positive, caring environment. This year, more than 500 hours of hard 
labour helped get the camp ready to provide disadvantaged families from across 
the GTA with a camp experience. 
"Every year, Nissan employees continue to show their unwavering support 
through their efforts to get our camp ready for children who get to escape the 
city and enjoy all that nature has to offer," said Peter Duraisami, CEO of the 
Scott Mission. "We believe that all children deserve a chance to go to camp 
and for 20 years Nissan has helped us welcome close to 600 kids each year. One 
week at camp can make a big difference in a child's life and it is often their 
only chance to get out of the city and just have fun and be a kid." 
Nissan Canada vehicles were also out in full force providing the hauling, 
towing and transporting support needed throughout the day. Included in this 
mix were the 2013 Nissan Frontier, 2013 Nissan Titan and the all-new 2013 
Nissan NV200. Heavy concrete swimming pool slabs were no match for the Titan's 
4,309 kg towing capacity and the NV200's large, innovative cargo space was 
perfect for tools and equipment. 
"Now in its 20(th) year, the Nissan Canada Foundation is a great example of 
how many hands can make light work," said Christian Meunier, President Nissan 
Canada Inc. "This year, we're proud to see so many Nissan hands reaching out 
to communities across Canada and we will continue to support organizations in 
whatever ways we can. The Nissan Camp Day and Toronto Challenge are evidence 
that single actions can have a profound effect on the lives of many." 
Nissan Canada also continued its support of the Toronto Challenge on Sunday, 
June 9. This family run and walk event raises money for non-profit 
organizations that are improving the quality of life for seniors in the 
community with funds raised going directly to community programs that 
contribute to independent living and home support for seniors and to Toronto 
Long-Term Care Homes & Services. 
In addition to providing $10,000 in support as a Gold sponsor of the 5k walk, 
Nissan Canada provided the use of its all-electric Nissan LEAF to be the 
event's Pace Car. This vehicle gave the participants something to chase with 
zero emissions to think about.
