Couche-Tard to raise funds for Make-A-Wish


Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. has partnered with the Convenience Industry Council of Canada (CICC) to raise funds for Make-A-Wish Canada during National Convenience Week, taking place from Monday, August 29th to Friday, September 2nd, 2022.

National Convenience Week is an annual, end-of-summer event recognizing the convenience channel and essential convenience store workers. In 2021, National Convenience Week raised over $134,000 with its national fundraising campaign. Make-A-Wish Canada works with communities across the country to provide children with critical illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wishes.

Highlighting the importance of this annual campaign, Anne Kothawala, president of the CICC said: “The convenience industry employs over 200,000 Canadians and sells over $50 billion annually in goods and services, and they are a key contributor to the Canadian economy. Essential employees working in convenience stores are at the heart of those activities and are the face of our industry in our communities. We are thrilled to count on the support of Couche-Tard in these efforts, celebrating their proud Canadian roots and their global people success story.”
