NAV CANADA “Renews Hope” for Cancer Patients in the Region

NAV CANADA employees continue to amaze as they transform cancer care in our community and lead the charge in corporate philanthropy. Through this year’s “Renewed Hope” fundraising campaign, NAV CANADA employees, with the help of suppliers and matching donations from the company, have raised another $300,000 to impact cancer treatment and research at The Ottawa Hospital.

Since 2008, NAV CANADA employees have generously supported The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, contributing $1,650,000 to ground-breaking cancer research, allowing The Ottawa Hospital to provide the very best in care to cancer patients in our community.

To wrap up their campaign, NAV CANADA held their annual family BBQ where they presented the cheque for $300,000 – the proceeds from this year’s campaign.

“I want to say how impressed I am with how much our employees are prepared to give to this cause,” said John Crichton, President and CEO of NAV CANADA. “Over the years, we have discovered what a strong connection we share with The Ottawa Hospital and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. Many of our family members, friends, and colleagues, have benefitted from the great work being done by their dedicated professionals.”

Tim Kluke, President and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, says, “As I have noted in the past, NAV CANADA has established a remarkable culture of philanthropy. The generosity of NAV CANADA and their employees is second to none in Ottawa, and has fuelled cancer research success at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.”

Thank you, NAV CANADA, for your continued dedication and commitment to health care in our community! Thanks to your generosity, cancer patients in our region will continue to have access to leading-edge cancer care!
