As the tensions between Ukraine and russia reached another record high last Fall and beginning of 2022 that to our regret lead to full-scale invasion into Ukraine, CUCC tried to help its members and UA & CA businesses by consulting them about ways to relocate businesses, overcome challenges and prepare BCP.
For the whole period since February 24, our team members based in Kyiv (with temporary relocation to Western Ukraine) and Toronto were ready to deliver. For more than two months CUCC was the only Canadian organization with staff in Ukraine ready to help and monitor the situation.
Understanding that Ukraine not only needs military equipment and funding to win the war we also acknowledge that the country will face even tougher period of rebuilding its economy, infrastructure and investment flows, the Board of CUCC decided to establish the “Rebuild Ukraine Committee”.
The committee is comprised of CUCC board members, executive team & willing member companies representatives. Participation is open and based on willingness to bring and execute new ideas and challenging projects that might be presented to the Government of Canada for funding and further implementation. Committee’s main focus areas are Investment flows, Construction, Agriculture, Oil&Gas, Energy, and ICT. Members meet biweekly, reporting on the progress reached and further steps.
