Social Impact

At Primacorp Ventures, corporate social responsibility is a part of our DNA.

Part of our mission is to enrich communities in which we operate y forming strategic partnerships and meaningful "give back" programs in the fields of education, healthcare, and employment. Our vision is to create a ripple effect of wellbeing in the communities where we live, work, and study.

Through Dr. Peter Chung's directorship with Power to Change, he helped to steer two major projects in Tanzania: provided training, equipment and resources to build water wells and acquired land to construct an orphanage.

With the Global Aid Network, Dr. Chung's generous donations helped implement a computer school in North Korea, which provided training and life skills to North Korean citizens. He also helped to provide food, nutritional, and educational programs in Cambodia and Thailand to assist with natural famine disasters and aid employment for Thai citizens. 

In 2013, after the death of their son, Joseph Chung, Dr. Peter Chung and his wife, Stephanie, founded Joe’s Table: a café that provides meaningful employment for individuals with cognitive disabilities. Employing five out of nine individuals with cognitive disabilities, Joe’s Table began as a mother and father’s dream to advocate for autism awareness and in memory of their late son, Joseph Chung. Joe's Table currently operates in South Korea, and will soon be opening its doors in Cloverdale, with more locations to come.

Drs. Peter and Stephanie Chung also established the Joseph Chung Scholarship Foundation that awards students wishing to pursue higher education in special needs education. Awarding over 500 students to date, the scholarship is offered through a number of post secondary institutions including Belhaven University, Regent College, Briercrest Seminary College, Trinity Western University, and Pepperdine University.

Having spent time in hospital with their son throughout his life, Drs. Peter and Stephanie Chung are also generous supporters of Surrey Memorial Hospital. In 2017, they made a donation of $50,000 to help support the construction of a new lobby for the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Stabilization Unit (CAPSU). In 2018, $130,000 was donated to purchase advanced thoracic surgical equipment for the hospital. And in 2019, a $1 million donation was presented, in memory of Joseph Chung, for the construction of a new Children’s Health Centre, enabling thousands of Fraser Valley children to see pediatric specialists closer to home.

Now, in 2021, Dr. Peter Chung has endeavoured to help Myanmar through its political crisis with food supplies and provide additional support to senior citizens and the marginalized community in BC.
