Connor, Clark & Lunn Financial Group (CC&L Financial Group) is pleased to announce that through the CC&L Foundation, we have pledged $150,000 over three years as part of a partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
Through this partnership, CC&L Financial Group becomes a founding member of CAMH’s Business Leaders for Mental Health Action. CAMH’s Business Leaders for Mental Health Action is a community of leaders committed to improving the psychological health and safety of employees and advocating for businesses to take action.

The announcement coincided with the launch of CAMH’s Mental Health week, which ran from May 3 – 9, 2021. Mental Health Week aims to shift societal beliefs and perception about mental health and promotes behaviours and attitudes that foster well-being, support good mental health, and create a culture of understanding and acceptance.
