Hospitals spotlight

In Canada and around the world, healthcare systems are overwhelmed. Hospitals and healthcare charities are doing all they can to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are in desperate need of support to aid their responses – purchasing necessary equipment, supporting staff, and more.
Our frontline health care workers are taking extra risks, extra measures, working longer hours, and leaving their families at home to provide world-class medical care for the people who need them most.
Manulife is supporting this critical work by providing meals and snacks to keep our healthcare workers going at the following hospitals:
VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation: COVID-19 Response Funds
Calgary Health Trust: The Clean Hands, Giving Hearts COVID-19 Response Fund
University Health Network: Emergency COVID-19 Fund
