BeCause & Effect #43: Javier Schwersensky

Environment & Animal Welfare

Javier Schwersensky says he has the best job in the world. As CEO of the Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS), Javier leads Manitoba’s oldest animal shelter and animal welfare non-profit that has served our community for 126 years.

Originally from Argentina, Javier has a wonderful success story in Canada, and has been giving back by working in Canada’s charitable sector.

I sat down with Javier to talk about the WHS, their devotion to animals, humble beginnings in Argentina, and how the WHS is looking forward in a post-COVID-19 world.

This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Javier.
