Landmark science led by @NatureUnitedCanada reveals that by protecting, better managing and restoring nature, Canada can cut its GHG emissions by up to 78 Mt CO2e annually in 2030—equal to the current emissions from powering every home in Canada for about 3 years.

In April 2020, the McCall MacBain Foundation was pleased to support @projectshare_nf, a food bank in Niagara Falls, Ontario, through our Pandemic Response Fund.

For more than 30 years, Project SHARE has been providing emergency food and support services to individuals and families who are living below the poverty line in Niagara Falls.

They have served 637 new families since March 2020, and distributed 830,000 pounds of food. The Foundation's gift was used to expand Project SHARE's fridge and freezer capacity, providing access to more healthy, perishable foods. Funding was also used to distribute grocery gift cards to those in need.

Thank you Project SHARE for your work serving individuals and families in need.

Today's #GranteeSpotlight is on @ArtsUmbrella. Arts Umbrella brings together young artists ages 2–22 to cultivate their creativity in Art & Design, Dance, and Theatre, Music & Film.

The McCall MacBain Foundation is proud to support four to five McCall MacBain Cultural Leadership Scholarships at Arts Umbrella annually.

2020/2021 recipient Ethan Ribeiro writes:

"I am extremely passionate about climate change and curtailing the negative effects humanity has had on the environment. I would like to bring these issues to the forefront through the arts, and explore how the professional dance community can become advocates for the environment. With help from my mentorship opportunity and the generous support from the McCall MacBain Cultural Leadership Scholarship Award, I would like to investigate what changes can be made to limit our contribution to increasing environmental damage. I would also like to have the opportunity to share with my fellow classmates how we, as a community, can make positive changes to improve the health of our environment.”

Today's #GranteeSpotlight is on the Kupe Leadership Scholarships at @universityofauckland.

In 2017, the McCall MacBain Foundation partnered with the University of Auckland to create the Kupe Leadership Scholarships, which give exceptional scholars an integrated financial, personal and professional experience that equips them to succeed as leaders in New Zealand, and internationally.

Pictured above is one of the 2020 Kupe Leadership Scholars we are proud to support, Sung-Min Jun. Sung-Min is completing a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (Honours). He shares the following:

“Embarking on a career in medicine, I am passionate about equity within healthcare. Of particular interest to me is the role of healthcare professionals in perpetuating or reducing health inequities. Research consistently shows that factors like ethnicity (i.e. Māori vs non- Māori) play a significant role in determining the quality of care a patient receives.

While multifactorial, a large part of this can be attributed to the attitudes and decisions a healthcare professional makes. New Zealand has come far in educating and working towards attaining this standard, however, we still have a lot to achieve and hope for. I aim to utilise all that I can to continue to foster and take part in developing the attitudes required to address this issue.”
