July 18, 2017

CMW and Capri Insurance are proud partners of Intact Insurance, a long-term sponsor of Bridges to Community Canada (BTCC). BTCC is a charitable organization that builds homes for families in Nicaragua, one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere with widespread underemployment and poverty.

As part of this sponsorship, Intact leaders travel to Nicaragua each year to work alongside local families, helping them construct safe, habitable homes. During the week of November 4-11, 2017,  Kelly Stafford and Dani Waters Russell of CMW and Capri will be joining Intact on this annual trip.
