ONA has divested from Russia

March 10, 2022

Like many around the world, the leaders and members of the Ontario Nurses’ Association have watched with great concern the invasion taking place in Ukraine and its impact on the health and well-being of Ukrainians, including the nurses and health-care workers serving their communities on the frontlines of this conflict.

ONA is committed to acting ethically and in line with our broader values. In this spirit, ONA’s investment managers have reviewed its investments and have liquidated all Russian holdings previously contained in our global equity fund. We hope this reassures members that ONA is not in any way supporting Russia’s activities.

ONA is proud to stand with those around the world, including the International Council of Nurses, calling for an end to Russia’s actions and a return to peace and security for Ukrainians.
