The Michaëlle Jean Foundation is pleased to partner with exceptional public, private and not-for-profit organizations. They are helping us bring hope and new opportunities to countless young people across Canada. We are grateful for the active involvement of the following organizations:
EQ3 is a furniture company with stores located across Canada. Through the Generation Art initiative, the company joined FMJF in giving young Canadians a platform to share their ideas about solutions to social issues and to depict their creative vision of a better Canada. We were thrilled by the active contribution of EQ3 in this worthwhile project.
Futurpreneur Canada is a national non-profit organization dedicated to growing our nation’s economy one young entrepreneur at a time. It looks at character, not collateral, when providing youth aged 18-39 with pre-launch coaching, business resources, start-up financing and mentoring to help them launch and sustain successful businesses, and has helped to create the Young Arts Entrepreneur programme. Established in 1996 as the Canadian Youth Business Foundation, Futurpreneur Canada has invested in more than 6,570 young and emerging entrepreneurs across Canada, whose businesses have created over 26,000 new jobs, $191 million in tax revenue and hundreds of millions of dollars in sales and export revenue.
A Bison Transport trailer, decorated with the theme “The Arts Save Lives “, is helping to spread the Foundation’s message on Canada’s highways and encouraging the public to support our work with underserved youth. We hope that all our friends will watch for the trailer and, if they see it in their neighbourhood, will send us a photo or Tweet us.
