The Future of Canada Project is supported by a generous $5-million gift from Chancellor Emeritus L. R. “Red” Wilson ’62. It was founded in 2020 as a three-year pilot project, with a goal to better understand the issues and opportunities facing Canada.

Led by McMaster University President David Farrar and a governance committee, the Project is also guided by a group of Canadian trailblazers that form the Council. The Council provides insight into Canada’s current needs and amplifies projects’ impact by reaching new stakeholders, including policy makers, business and community leaders, and the public.

“At the forefront of this project is not just McMaster’s rich expertise, but also Canada itself, and all of us living within it: how we have arrived at our current moment, these challenging times, and how we can move forward in a way that protects democracy, nurtures leadership, and achieves our fullest potential.”
