Square Enix Montréal is committed to engaging with the community where we live and work, and doing our part to promote social progress.

We want to do much more than paying lip service to our values. We strive to live by them.

values committes

How can we avoid our values being relegated to an inspiring poster of a sun-drenched jumping dolphin?

By making values an everyday priority at every level and by involving our team every step of the way. Our values committees are composed of 6-8 employees who are empowered to propose projects and initiatives that will support our values. We believe that our company culture will stand the test of time if its foundations are built and strengthened by our people, for our people.

Volunteer Recognition Program

Our Studio wishes to act as an agent of change in the community and to recognize the contribution of our employees to causes that are important to them.

Our volunteer recognition program rewards our team members who are involved with NPOs on their personal time.

Girl & Tech

To attract more women to the video industry we must expose girls early to the potential of a future in science and technology. Our studio wants to play a role in promoting STEM to young girls thus opening a whole new world of possibilities for them and helping them achieve their dreams.

Square Enix Montréal provides financing to organizations such as Les Scientifines and Technovation Montréal that encourage the interest of girls ages 8 to 18 in science and technology.

We are also a co-founder of Next Lev'Elles, a cross-studio series of virtual conferences that present inspiring talks by women in the video game industry.

Diversity & Inclusion

Posting the value of Inclusion on our website is one thing, taking concrete action to become better allies to the LGBTQ+ community is another.

We are proud to support organizations such as Code Coven and Project 10 that work to encourage the personal, professional, social, sexual, and mental well being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirit, intersex, and questioning (2LGBTQ+) individuals.
