Fidelity Canada achieves Canadian Compassionate Company (CCC) designation
The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA)’s Champion’s Council is pleased to announce that Fidelity Canada has been awarded the designation of Canadian Compassionate Company (CCC). Fidelity Canada has demonstrated support for their employees in times of family distress by formally including supports and protections for their employees who need flexibility to care for a loved one suffering from a life-limiting illness or at end-of-life.
Canadian Compassionate Companies (CCC) is a designation for Canadian employers who support their employees who have taken on the vital role of caring for a seriously ill loved one. Employers have an important role to play in supporting their employees, who have taken on this role, and Fidelity Canada is among only a handful of companies who have qualified for this designation; they stand at the forefront of employers who are providing this kind of support.
The CHPCA’s Champion’s Council Chair Russell Williams, offered his congratulations to Fidelity Canada: “As one of the world’s largest and most successful money managers, Fidelity Canada’s commitment to its employees in this capacity is an example what corporate Canada should be working toward. We are proud to have them listed as a CCC. ”
More information on the Canadian Compassionate Company (CCC) designation is available on CHPCA’s website at www.chpca.net.
Founded in 2010, the Champion’s Council is comprised of a group of key leaders in Canada who have offered to advance the profile of hospice palliative care across the country, working with the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) to achieve their goal.
