WE Charity Ending Canadian Operations
Blames COVID-19, fallout from "political battles and misinformation"

Following a summer of controversy over its operations, practises, and government relationships, WE Charity said on Wednesday that it will be bringing its Canadian activities and presence to an end.

“It is with great sadness that WE Charity and its Board of Directors announce they are winding down the organization’s operations in Canada,” WE stated in a news release. “The organization will be selling its assets to establish an endowment fund to sustain the charity’s existing international humanitarian programs and digitize its Canadian educational resources for long-term access.”
