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.
