When a child is hungry it is hard to learn, and yet 1 in 6 Canadian children face hunger every year. Governance and Emergency Management Canada wants to make sure kids have every opportunity to live and learn to their full potential. We are a proud supporter of Breakfast for Learning, which is a national charity that educates and empowers communities to deliver school based nutrition programs to ensure children attend school well nourished and ready to learn. Our financial contribution is directed within our focus of education.
We believe that in addition to operating a responsible and ethical business, we can make a broader contribution to society, thereby building resilience in young children that will benefit the communities where we do business and operate.
