Moncton (NB), November 10, 2020 - Assumption Life is pleased to announce its support for the project to transform a former UNI building into a community health care cooperative in Inkerman with a donation of $80,000 over five years. In addition, Réjean Boudreau, vice-president, head of organizational development and client experience, has willingly accepted to co-chair the fundraising campaign for this promising project.

"The year 2020 teaches us collectively that health is our greatest asset, and this year, we are supporting initiatives that prioritize health. As a leader in social commitment, Assumption Life is therefore pleased to offer this significant donation for a concrete project in one of our communities that will have a positive impact on people's long-term health," said Sébastien Dupuis, president and CEO of Assumption Life.

A group of Inkerman citizens has been working for several months to transform the building of the former UNI Financial Cooperation service point into a community health cooperative. The vision of this project is to offer local, quality, accessible and professional comprehensive health care services in the region in order to meet people's needs.

"This health center represents not only a contribution to people's health, but will also have a significant positive social and economic impact for the entire greater region. In addition, I am honoured to co-chair the fundraising campaign to bring this project to fruition. I firmly believe that it is by working together with partners that we can build our communities and truly make a difference," said Réjean Boudreau, vice-president, chief of organizational development and client experience at Assumption Life, who is himself a native of the Inkerman parish.

Founded in 1903, Assumption Life offers individual and group insurance, investment and retirement products, as well as mortgage loans. It is present in all provinces and territories of Canada. The company's head office is located in Moncton, New Brunswick.
