McCain Foods Canada


Representing New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island

Employees at McCain Foods Canada’s New Brunswick operations started supporting the blood system as a partner in 2009. Within a year, their donation pledge increased from 30 to 50 units of blood. Nearly a decade later, with their commitment strong as ever, they continue to drive success at mobile donation events in the communities of Florenceville-Bristol and Grand Falls. The company has contributed nearly 4,900 units of blood and 228 new donors — a significant accomplishment for a small, rural area.

When the partner program evolved, the company was happy to take on the role of Cause Champion in addition to continuing with their scheduled donations. McCain Foods Canada has encouraged their locations in Toronto, Ontario and Coaldale, Alberta to also get involved, a true demonstration of the company’s “Be Good. Do Good” values and giving back to the communities in which they operate.
