July Attribute is INTEGRITY

I will do what is right and ensure there is no difference between what I say and what I do.


  • do the right thing, even if it isn’t going to be easy for me or for others.
  • make sure there is no difference between what I say and what I do.
  • be consistent and true to my heart.


Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

Print off our MONTHLY ATTRIBUTE card to use all year long.



What is a Character Community?

A Character Community is one in which members of the community work together to nurture positive character attributes.

It requires a shift in thinking and a focus on attitudes and behaviours that lead to achievement and success.

Character is important

Good character makes a positive difference in our families, schools, businesses and neighbourhoods by acting as a catalyst for positive change and citizen engagement.

A Character Community attracts people and businesses of character and acts as a driver for economic growth and prosperity.

The Character Community encourages businesses to:

  • Identify what the business stands for
  • Establish ethical business practices
  • Emphasize customer-service
  • Foster strong Character employees
  • Develop business leaders of Character
  • Give back to their community
