CAE announced today that it has reached a new record in funds raised for the 2023 CAE-Centraide (United Way) campaign. This year, CAE raised $1.3 million through employee donations, fundraising activities, and a corporate donation.
"For more than two decades, CAE employees, our union and other partners in Canada have contributed to our Centraide campaign and I am grateful for their ongoing generosity and commitment," said Marc Parent, CAE's President and CEO. "CAE’s annual Centraide campaign is a wonderful opportunity to give back to communities in need, and it's also an ideal moment for us to unite as One CAE around a common purpose that is greater than ourselves.”
CAE and Unifor Local 522 have led fundraising campaigns for Centraide for over two decades and have been recognized by 10 Centraide Solidaires awards, which highlight outstanding campaigns. CAE and its employees are extremely proud to be an integral part of the fabric of Canada and have donated more than $17.1 million to Centraide since 2000.
In addition to Centraide, CAE supports the communities in which it operates through partnerships, donations and sponsorships that mainly support causes in education, civil aviation, defence, security and healthcare. The company also encourages individual and team volunteering through its CAEvolunteering program and donates to several causes supported by employees.
