Medavie Contributes $100K to the Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund

Halifax, NS – Medavie, through its Foundation, is providing $100,000 to the Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund. The fund was established by the Government of Nova Scotia and the Canadian Red Cross to support the immediate and long-term needs of the individuals, families and communities impacted by the province’s recent tragedy.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone touched by this tragedy, as we grieve together as a country, knowing the emotional reach extends far beyond Nova Scotia,” said Bernard Lord, Medavie CEO. “We send a heartfelt thank you to our colleagues at Emergency Health Services, who responded to this call with professionalism and courage, and to all frontline personnel who dedicate their lives to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our communities. We also thank the Government of Nova Scotia and the Canadian Red Cross for establishing this fund and providing an opportunity to support.”

For over 75 years, Medavie has been caring for Nova Scotians. From our first responders to our health care professionals, some 2,000 of our 6,400 employees are based here in Nova Scotia.

Through our Foundation, Medavie supports community-based programs aligned with adolescent mental health and post-traumatic stress, and initiatives that support active living and healthy eating.
