While the Manulift family is committed and dedicated to delivering the best solutions to our customers, it is equally passionate about the communities where our employees, customers and partners live and work. That is why we are working with various organizations, causes and events that directly or indirectly have a tangible impact on the health and well-being of local communities.

One of our key causes is the mental health of farmers. The rate of psychological distress and suicide is twice as high among this group that provides essential services. As such, Manulift provides financial support to the ACFA and the “Travailleur de rang” project, which has enabled a person to be hired in the Capitale-Nationale–Côte-Nord region.
