Celebrating Stream’s 12 years in Chilliwack

Stream will be ramping up efforts to help local charities by raising money and collecting Sally Ann donations

Hundreds of Stream Global Services employees and their families will be celebrating Stream’s 12 years in Chilliwack with a barbecue lunch, carnival games and competitions on Saturday.

As part of the July 13 festivities, Stream will be ramping up efforts to help local charities by raising money and collecting donations to support the Chilliwack Salvation Army.

“Twelve years ago, Eagle Landing wasn’t even on the radar, Garrison Crossing was filled with former base homes, and The Landing Leisure Centre, Cultural Centre and GW Graham Secondary didn’t exist in our community,” said Mike Robinson, Stream’s director of site operations.

“Our 12th anniversary celebration is an opportunity to thank our employees for all that they have done to help make Chilliwack a vibrant, growing community.”

Live entertainment and performances from Stream employees will also be featured at the anniversary event.

The call centre was established in 2001, and is still among the largest employers in the entire region. From its Chilliwack site on Evans Road, Stream provides customer care, technical support and sales for well-known brand names in entertainment, computers, wireless and consumer electronics.
