Canam Group Donates $221,102 to United Way

December 19, 2019

The Canam Group’s annual United Way fundraising campaign, which took place last October in plants and offices in Quebec, raised $221,102, mainly through the payroll deductions program. This amount includes Canam Group’s corporate donation that matched the amount raised by employees.

Employees in Quebec are divided between 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 employees raised $49,683.
  • The Greater Montreal area (plants and offices located in Boucherville and Laval) where employees raised $44,233.

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 $3,957 and $4,085 respectively.

“The 2019 United Way campaign is once again a success and it is on behalf of all the people who, through different organizations, will benefit from the amassed funds that I thank all Canam Group’s colleagues for their great generosity,” says Claude Provost, Senior Vice President, Culture and Organizational Development. “I would particularly like to thank the teams who do not hesitate to get involved in fundraising activities to animate the annual campaign. Thanks again to all!”
