Ecclesiastical Insurance Launches Partnership with the Alzheimer Society

Toronto, ON (Sept. 9, 2020) – Ecclesiastical Insurance is delighted to launch a special two-year funding partnership with the Alzheimer Society.

“We are extremely proud of our organization’s fundamental commitment to helping people in need and to supporting the communities in which we live and work,” said David Huebel, Ecclesiastical’s President. “While this unbelievably challenging pandemic has upended all our lives,” he continued, “we recognize just how much more challenging it is for the almost 750,000 Canadians who are living with dementia. We are grateful to the Alzheimer’ Society for the wide range of support services it provides to dementia sufferers, their families and caregivers. We are honoured to support their efforts and look forward to partnering with them over the next two years.”

As part of the partnership, Ecclesiastical will provide funding for a variety of programs delivered by Alzheimer societies across the country:

  • in Toronto, Preventing Social Isolation through Social Recreation Programs;
  • in Calgary, The Family Caregiver Education Series;
  • in Nova Scotia, Public Education;
  • and in British Columbia, The Climb for Alzheimer’s, a first-ever ‘virtual’ event.

“In addition to specific funding opportunities,” said Lorna McIntosh, Ecclesiastical’s Vice President, Human Resources, “our employees look forward to participating in the Halifax and Toronto Walks for Alzheimer’s, both scheduled for Spring 2021. Ecclesiastical employees believe deeply in our organization’s values––in social responsibility and in contributing to the greater good. We are especially proud of their participation in our recent COVID-19 Grant initiative.”
