Corporate Partners

The Canadian Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian network. Through this vast network and partnerships with top Canadian corporations, the Red Cross reaches millions of vulnerable people with urgent help each and every year.

In communities across Canada , our corporate partners enable the Red Cross to provide relief and recovery assistance to individuals, families and small businesses impacted by disasters such as floods and fires. They also make our communities safer and stronger by supporting anti-bullying programs for young people and courses that teach Canadians lifesaving skills in water safety and first aid.

Around the world, our corporate partners ensure emergency medical assistance and relief supplies arrive in places hit by natural disaster, conflict and disease outbreak. They also strengthen vulnerable communities by supporting local health and clean water projects.

The corporate partners of the Canadian Red Cross truly are humanitarian leaders – both here at home and around the world. Find out below how our corporate partners are making an impact.
