On behalf of our team across Canada, thank you to the front-line workers who are supporting all of us during this global pandemic. To show them our support and gratitude, we’ve dedicated more than $1.1 million dollars to several critical areas, which include:
Food security for the most vulnerable in our communities by partnering with food banks and distribution organizations
Supporting the well-being of healthcare workers
Enabling mental health support through digital programs
Offering financial relief to customers experiencing hardship
Facilitating matching donations and virtual volunteer programs
Let’s do the right thing – Together
