At Medavie, everything we do is to improve the health and wellbeing of Canadians, and we have never been more committed to that mission than over the past year. When COVID-19 affected nearly every aspect of our lives, our teams stepped up to help Canadians and the communities they call home.
The needs of our communities have been significant throughout this crisis, especially for our most vulnerable and at-risk community members. That’s why just weeks into the pandemic, through the Medavie Health Foundation, we committed $5 million through a COVID-19 Response Fund to improve access to food and youth mental health services — the most we have ever committed through our Foundation in a single year.
We have been inspired by the stories of people the Fund has supported from every corner of our country who are caring for Canadians and building a healthier future together. And now, you’re invited to explore the stories highlighted in the COVID-19 Response Fund Report and see how communities have come together in the face of considerable change and uncertainty.
We are incredibly proud of the impact this Fund had on areas of food security and youth mental health, especially for communities most impacted by the pandemic. We know the full impact will continue to be felt as funds are disbursed through 2021 to help communities recover.
