Quotes

...to its tradition of recognizing Canadians from all sectors and regions of the country," said David Mitchell, President and CEO of the Forum. "These honourees represent the highest standards of accomplishment, leadership, and service to their respective fields and to their country."
Shari Austin, Vice President, RBC Corporate Citizenship and executive director, RBC Foundation: "Timely access to mental health specialists and treatment is critical. Most mental disorders begin in childhood or adolescence - when the signs of mental illness are recognized and treated early, those affected can go on to lead healthy, productive lives. Today, access to mental health services in the Canadian North is largely unavailable. Through our $200,000 donation to Sick Kids and by partnering with Cisco, we will help deliver access to health experts in a region where these services might not be available otherwise. This support is part of our RBC BelieveBelieve in Kids Pledge, a five-year, $100 million commitment to improving the well-being of at least one million children and youth in Canada."
