The United Nations Associaition in Canada Toronto Region Branch extends our condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the ET302 tragedy, some of whom were heading to their destination as part of UNA-Canada's Canada Service Corps program.
“Four of the victims were a part of our UNA-Canada family,” says Kate White, President of the United Nations Association in Canada. “Our condolences and our thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and loved ones of four talented young Canadians. This is a profound loss. These four youths, one a UNA-Canada staffer and three young delegates who had volunteered in their communities with Ocean Wise and with the Canadian Wildlife Federation were heading to Nairobi under our banner to represent Canada as part of a very special program shaped with the Government of Canada and civil society partners – Canada Service Corps.”
