OCP Construction Supplies, owned and operated by the Cousineau family, announced recently it would match gifts of support to hospitals across Ontario’s Northeast. As a result, Sault Area Hospital (SAH), Health Sciences North (HSN), North Bay Regional Health Centre (NBRHC) and Timmins and District Hospital (TADH) will each receive $25,000, to support the purchase of equipment and other priority needs for patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are proud to live and work in northeastern Ontario,” said Richard Cousineau, President, OCP Construction Supplies.

We strongly support the hard work and dedication of our health care workers and we want to express our gratitude as much as possible.
