Canada is home to a large Ukrainian population (the world’s largest outside of Ukraine and Russia) and many of our colleagues and neighbours have family and friends who have been impacted deeply. The National Federation of CIBPA Canada supports Ukraine in raising funds to help with their immediate needs for drinking water, food, healthcare and shelter. If you are interested in making a personal donation, you may want to consider donating to either UNICEF or the Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal. Individual donations made to the Canadian Red Cross between February 24, 2022 and March 18, 2022, up to a maximum of $10 million (CAD), will be matched by the Government of Canada. Donations will support those impacted by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
