Security Team

When we say Motive is a secure facility – we truly mean it. Every person entering our building is inspected and require to pass a test. An ear scratch usually does the trick.


At Motive Media, we truly believe it is our duty to give back to the World all that we have gotten from it. We are heavily involved in charity and volunteer work, and feel that if everyone does their part, we can make the world a better place!

Motive Media is heavily involved with Tanya’s Tushies, a team of dedicated people who organize and participate in the annual Aurora Push For Your Tush, benefitting Colon Cancer Canada. The team was created by Tanya Shepherd (a former employee of Motive, and Kathy Cartan’s daughter-in-law) who passed away at the young age of 28 from colon cancer. The team stayed together and has since helped raise over $250,000 for colon cancer research in her honour. Motive is proud to supply the signage and promotional material for the event – as well as participate each year!

Another cause that is near and dear to Motive Media’s heart is Movember. A great friend of Kathy’s heads the Canadian Movember movement, and Motive is proud to support through any signage or vehicle graphic needs, as well as putting the word out in a big way! In 2013, Motive Media won top fundraising team in the Toronto Transportation Club’s Mo Challenge, and we can’t wait to see what we can do next year!
