NOVA Chemicals Corporation (“NOVA Chemicals”) today announced an additional US$600,000 commitment in COVID-19-related supports across our operational regions, bringing the total amount given for pandemic relief to US$1.25M, as part of efforts to meaningfully give back to our neighbors and their communities.

“While we continue to see positive momentum toward a world with higher vaccination rates and fewer restrictions, the impacts felt by the pandemic will unfortunately have lasting effects,” said Mona Jasinski, SVP HR and Communications, NOVA Chemicals. “I am proud of NOVA’s commitment to ensuring there is food on the table for tens of thousands of people, mental health supports are available where and when they are needed, and that no one in our communities is left behind.”

Many are still grappling with the impacts of COVID-19, with hundreds of thousands of individuals and families tipping into poverty due to unstable employment and the rising cost of goods. Particularly important in the weeks leading up to winter holidays, financial support in the areas of food security, mental health programs, and building overall community resiliency and capacity will be given to help ease the burden that COVID-19 has created for so many of our neighbors over the past 21 months.

“GivingTuesday is the perfect time for all of us to show our neighbors they will not be forgotten as the world recovers from this pandemic,” said Jasinski. “NOVA has a strong history of showing up for our communities when it’s needed most, and we are pleased to be in a position to provide needed support heading into what will still be a difficult holiday season for so many.”

NOVA Chemicals’ long-standing commitment to “doing the right thing” under the principles of Responsible Care is central to our operations. We are committed to helping shape a world that is even better tomorrow than it is today.
