The Foundation for Canadian Studies is changing. As well as promoting academic links at British universities and supporting UK students in their study of Canada, the Board of Trustees is currently exploring how we can deliver our charitable mission of promoting and encouraging education concerning Canada in the United Kingdom in a broader way. The recent changes to the composition of our Board of Trustees reflects the need to ensure that we are unified and co-ordinated in our strategic vision and approach in order to operate in the best interests of the Foundation.
Collectively, it is the Board of Trustee’s duty to ensure that the Foundation remains true to its original mission in a manner that is relevant to all its stakeholders. By fulfilling our mandate in a more inclusive and innovative way, we believe we can best achieve the charitable aims of the Foundation as well as regain our charitable status in Canada – which is vital to secure the financial future of the charity. We are currently determining how the Foundation can best fulfil its mission and as a start to create a broader platform of support, we will be changing our name to be THE CANADA-UK FOUNDATION. More details and exciting news will follow later this spring.
