This week we, along with about 20 other Québec companies, announced that we were going to sponsor up to 1,000 Ukrainian families affected by the crisis, offering them jobs and means of support until the situation in Ukraine stabilizes.
This initiative is just one example of the unique solidarity shown by the business community. We are proud to stand alongside companies such as Alimentation Couche-Tard, National Bank of Canada, Bombardier, Broccolini, CAE, Coveo, Groupe Hélios, Intelcom, JPMA Global, KPMG, Novacap, Plusgrade, Resolute Forest Products, Trans-Pro Logistique, SAJO, 5N Plus and Stingray to offer a united response to the tragedy in Ukraine, following the Russian invasion.
It was important for Pomerleau and Beaubois to take strong action and support families in need. This is not something we are doing lightly, and we will have a lot to do to welcome these workers and their families. Together, we are committed to doing our best to welcome them with love and provide them with the support and resources they will need to settle in Quebec.
