Global Vision, the producer of global leaders since 1991, announces the establishment of the H & M Award. The first awards were presented during the National Youth Forum in Toronto, Ontario, April, 4-8, 2009.
The award has been created to celebrate the first 20 years of Global Vision’s engagement of enterprising Canadian youth in the Junior Team Canada program . The mission statement of Global Vision is as follows:
We will champion the enterprising spirit of young Canadians in the promotion of Canadian industry and culture as we achieve recognition as a major force in the global marketplace.Inspired by this irrepressible drive to become world-class, we will provide access to national and global networks for young Canadians to acquire the international development, trade and cross-cultural experience to become the next leaders of Canada. Grounded in the enduring principles of integrity, compassion and mutual respect in everything we say and do, we will touch the hearts and minds of Canadians in communities across the land.
The H&M Award is given to those:
- who champion the spirit of this mission statement
- who engage their fellows to develop innovative solutions and practices destined to improve the lives of others in Canada and abroad who assure that no one gets left behind.
