National Initiative

An annual donation of personal protective equipment for Canadian Secondary Schools

Overview

Each year the Foundation seeks to fund all secondary schools in Canada with personal protective equipment through its National Initiative.  In 2016 more than 3,000 auto darkening helmets were distributed to over 400 secondary schools across Canada. In 2017, the Foundation will be distributing welding jackets throughout Canada. With input from educators, the Foundation will select a much needed item for distribution each year.
