WE Charity closing operations in Canada

Recommended Posts

WE Charity says it is closing its Canadian operations, blaming COVID-19 and the political fallout from the Liberal government’s plan to have it run a multimillion-dollar student-volunteer program for leaving it in financial ruin.

Craig and Marc Kielburger, who are also planning to step down from the organization they co-founded, were set to release an open letter explaining the move.

“COVID-19 disrupted every aspect of our work,” the brothers wrote in the letter Wednesday. “The fallout from the Canada Student Service Grant has placed us as a charity in the middle of political battles and misinformation that we are ill-equipped to fight.

“The financial math for the charity’s future is clear.”



They also said they're selling their headquarters buildings in Toronto.  I'm eager to see where that money goes.  Their parents, who are pro real estate flippers, have sold properties to WE Charity in Toronto for a tidy profit.  Gee nothing fishy there!

The We charity originated in Canada started by a 12 year old kid, and became an organization that helped kids all around the world to escape child slavery. The kid, Craig Kielburger, has since been named to the Order of Canada.


On 9 September 2020, We Charity announced that it was winding down its operations in Canada and selling its assets to establish an endowment that will help sustain ongoing We Charity projects around the world. The announcement also explains that the existing board of directors, the existing Canadian employees, and the Kielburgers would leave We Charity Canada.

Mr. Trudeau has become a veritable King Midas, who's mere touch promises to bestow a great reward, but actually leads to total fatality. Should have said thanks Justin, but no thanks...

"The future looks bright ahead," he said. "All is golden... "
