January 20, 2021

The Canam Group’s annual United Way fundraising campaign, which took place last fall in plants and offices in Quebec, raised $194,005, mainly through the payroll deductions program. This amount includes Canam Group’s corporate donation that matched the amount raised by employees.

The campaign includes two major United Way regions:

  • The Quebec and Chaudière-Appalaches area (plants and offices located in Quebec City, St. Georges and St. Gédéon de Beauce) where $114,454 was raised.
  • The Greater Montreal area (plants and offices located in Boucherville and Laval) where $79,552 was raised.

Funds were also raised for two other charitable organizations, HealthPartners-Quebec and the Quebec division of the Canadian Red Cross, which will be presented with checks for $400 and $1,279 respectively.

“There were limited opportunities for activities during the 2020 campaign, but the need was particularly great. On behalf of all those who, through various organizations, will benefit from the funds raised, I would like to thank all the colleagues at Canam Group for their great generosity,” said Claude Provost, Senior Vice President, Culture and Organizational Development. “I  particularly want to thank the teams who coordinated the annual campaign. Thanks again to everyone!”
