Canfor's Longtime Support of BC Children Continues



Giving back to the communities in which we operate is part of our culture at Canfor. This commitment includes Canfor’s long-standing tradition of supporting events and organizations – particularly those that benefit children and youth, including the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

This past weekend, as part of the 29th annual BC Children’s Hospital Miracle Weekend, a group of Canfor Kids presented our donation of $15,682. The donation, which consists of a corporate donation and funds raised by employee fundraising efforts, will help ensure that BC Children’s Hospital is able to provide the best care possible. While the hospital is located in Vancouver, it serves children from all around BC, including those who travel from the many BC communities where Canfor operates.

Canfor has been a proud supporter of the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation for nearly 30 years with this marking our 28th consecutive year of participation in this annual fundraising campaign.

This past weekend’s event raised a record-breaking $20,018,608 and Canfor takes great pride in helping contribute to the success of this key fundraising event. Congratulations to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and thank you to everyone who donated to support the BC Children’s Hospital.
