Ottawa-based Shopify will temporarily suspend operations in Russia and Belarus and will not be collecting fees from its Ukrainian merchants and partners for the “foreseeable future”.
“Like so many, we have been deeply unsettled by the unprovoked attacks and ongoing war in Ukraine,” the company said in a statement. “Shopify stands in support of all those directly affected by this crisis. We hope to see an immediate end to this tragic situation and a return to peace in Ukraine.”
Shopify announced it will contribute funds to provide humanitarian aid through its partner, Flexport, and match employee donations.
The hospital says donations like RBC’s has helped TOH become one of Canada’s largest teaching and research healthcare institutions.

Shopify noted that it will continue to monitor events on the ground and comply with applicable sanctions.
Shopify joins many companies curtailing their activities in Russia and supporting the Ukrainian people, given the ongoing situation.
