Canada House Wellness Group’s (CHV.C) subsidiary, Abba Medix, registered more than 500 medical patients in its first year, while its other subsidiary, Canada House Clinics, bypassed the 3,000 active Veteran medical registrations, according to a press release.
These numbers come in conjunction with their recent series of social media campaigns in support of veterans through the Helmets to Hardhats initiative. The company’s veteran advocate, Glen Coyle, and fellow vet, Sgt. Christian Begley, marched the 150 kilometer stretched from Collingwood , Ontario to Toronto City Hall, raising over $20,000 via the GoFundMe platform for Helmets to Hardhats Canada. CHC contributed $7,500 of the donation amount and handled the social media coverage to help get more donations for the cause.
“Helmets to Hardhats is proud to be able to help our Veterans find their next home and purpose. We are so grateful to Glen Coyle, Christian Begley and Canada House for doing the walk, raising over $20K, increasing awareness and directly donating a third of the total amount raised,” said Mike Humphries, Helmets to Hardhats Veteran Liaison.
Glen Coyle is probably best known for his time on Holmes on Homes, where he and Mike Holmes repaired several veteran residences. He became a veteran advocate for Canada House shortly after and now advises the company on how CHC can improve support for vets while they go about slotting themselves into becoming the go-to educational platform for veterans on the benefits of medical cannabis.
“As a Veteran focused company, we are not only focused on delivering and providing top quality cannabis products and services but are also focused on giving back to this important demographic who have not only shaped the Cannabis industry as we know it today, but risked their lives in protecting the rights and freedoms of our Country. Supporting veteran charities and life after the military is a core value of Canada House and something we will continue to support going forward in an organized and responsible way,” said Chris Churchill-Smith, Canada House CEO.
