We Stand with Ukraine
At The North West Company, our thoughts are with the over 1.7 million people including children who have been forced to flee from their homes and seek refuge. We recognize the 1.3 million Ukrainian-Canadians across the nation, 180,000 of whom are living in our home province of Manitoba and all those represented in every community North West serves. This moment calls for unity, it calls for courage, and it reminds us that we must never lose sight of the humanity we all share. Our hearts go out to the people of Ukraine and all those whose lives have been touched by this calamity.
The North West Company employees are fundraising as a show of support, and the Company will match employee donations to the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal of the Canadian Red Cross and the UN Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, up to $25,000.00.
If you are looking for ways to help the individuals and families directly affected by this tragedy, we encourage you to support through these organizations.
We continue to stand with all those impacted by this evolving crisis.
Dan McConnell, CEO & President
