Fort McMurray forest fires: SSQ is helping

The forest fires that engulfed the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta have touched many. The fires have forced more than 80,000 people from their homes, leaving everything behind. Many of them have lost everything. SSQ Financial Group made a donation to the Canadian Red Cross to help provide some financial assistance that will allow disaster victims meet their immediate needs during this difficult time.

By providing support following recent events such as the floods in Calgary, the explosion in downtown Lac-Mégantic and the Haiyan typhoon in the Philippines, SSQ shows its commitment to social responsibility by contributing to the wellness of communities.
