Congratulations to our team in Vancouver for winning the Community Impact Award at the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade 2022 Business Distinction Awards.
The award is presented to a company that has successfully established a positive impact in its local community through programs, partnerships, and/or volunteerism.
Over the last 18 months, Ceres Vancouver cruise teams have helped create community immunity by providing the non-clinical staff at over 8 vaccination clinics with our health partners. Ceres Canada recognized a much-needed need in Vancouver and jumped at the opportunity to serve and help the community.
The teams from Ceres helped facilitate over 1.9 million vaccines to be administered in clinics and to seafarers in the Port of Vancouver and Prince Rupert.
“The commitment of the team was so strong because what we were doing was so important to ensure our communities would be able to welcome back the cruise and tourism industries,” said Kathy deLisser, Regional Vice President, Ceres Canada.
