As one of our earliest and most valued partners, Power Corporation of Canada has played a pivotal role in the growth and sustainability of the RHF as an enduring legacy of the Right Honourable David Johnston, Canada’s 28th Governor General.
From your strategic leadership and guidance during our early years to your support and collaboration more recently in key programmatic areas such as the Queen Elizabeth Scholars, the Governor General’s Innovation Awards and the Michener Awards in Public Service Journalism, your partnership has made possible the acceleration of our work in the fields of learning, leadership and most importantly – elevating Canada’s culture of innovation across the country. Yours is a shining example of barn-raising that the RHF seeks to inspire in all Canadians.
This microsite presents a time capsule of the progress and the achievements we have accomplished over the last decade in our mission to build a smarter more caring Canada. We invite you to review the impact made possible thanks to your extraordinary partnership. Your support is helping so many Canadians realize their fullest potential.
We are deeply grateful for your early support and faith in the RHF. On behalf of thousands of Canadians who are benefitting from your trust and investment in our work, we thank you.
