Charter For Business

The Charter for Business (CFB) is the Award’s primary funding body, made up of benefactors (Founding Partners) from across the country. Established in 1996, the CFB is a partnership with the business community designed to support the expansion of The Award in Canada, with a particular focus on disadvantaged youth. 

Managed by an independent Board of Governors, the CFB brings together dozens of Canada’s leading corporations, foundations, and business executives to build a strong base of support for The Award. 

The CFB’s primary goal is to ensure that The Award and its benefits are made available to nearly 5 million young Canadians who fall within The Award’s age range, including 1 million who are considered to be at-risk.
