MAC Contributes to Fort McMurray Relief

The Mining Association of Canada (MAC), representing mining operations active in almost every Canadian jurisdiction, announced today it is making a contribution of $50,000 to the Red Cross in Alberta to support the families devastated by the wild fire that has ravaged Fort McMurray and surrounding areas.

“Fort McMurray is a major Canadian mining town. MAC members, several of which are active in the oil sands mining industry, wanted the Association to make this gesture of support. Doubtless countless Canadians and Canadian businesses will be doing the same over the coming days and weeks to help the individuals and families who have lost their homes,” stated Pierre Gratton, MAC’s President and CEO.

The Red Cross has launched the Alberta Fires Appeal for those wishing to make a financial donation at www.redcross.ca/albertafires.
