The Teamsters Canada Foundation donated $5,000 to Daily Bread Food Bank and $5,000 to Hamilton Food Share earlier this summer.
Teamsters Canada Foundation
Being a Teamster is about more than grievances and collective agreements. It’s also about helping those in need, supporting communities and building up a better country.
That is why, in 2018, Teamsters Canada President François Laporte launched a national foundation dedicated to helping local charities, expanding our scholarship program, and responding to natural disasters and other crises.
Local unions, joint councils, conferences and Teamsters Canada have been involved in raising money for good causes for decades. The new foundation cements this longstanding practice.
