In recent months everyone has been made aware of the terrible flooding occurring in Quebec. Taiga has two branches in this province, located in Boucherville and St. Augustin, so this directly affects not only our customers and partners, but also our staff and families. As of late last week the floods had impacted over 173 municipalities and 4,500 houses. There were more than 3,000 evacuees and 126 landslides reported.
We want to help, therefore Taiga has donated $20,000.00 to the Croix Rouge efforts. When the disastrous fires occurred in Fort McMurray last year, Taiga supported Alberta in a similar fashion, giving to the Red Cross who we believe are tremendously responsive in dealing with such adversities. Canadians come together at times like these and we are hopeful this helps in some small way. We are proud to have such a community-oriented team in Quebec and across Canada.
