To help those affected by the recent extreme weather and resulting floods in British Columbia, Aviva Canada is donating $50,000 to the Canadian Red Cross’s disaster relief efforts.
“The devastating situation in B.C. is yet another reminder that climate change is making Canadians extremely vulnerable - physically, emotionally and financially. As insurers, we must help Canadians mitigate and adapt to climate change and bend the curve on these alarming trends,” said Aviva Canada CEO Jason Storah. “We are here to support impacted customers in these challenging times and are committed to get them back into their homes and businesses as soon as conditions permit.”
Aviva Canada has also announced that it will double match all donations its employees make towards the Canadian Red Cross. The insurer is also calling on the public to donate to the non-profit to help flood victims.
