Empowering young people and Veterans to build resilient, future-ready communities.

Our vision is a sustainable future for Canada, where young people and communities thrive.

We are a national charity that delivers impact across Canada. Through innovative partnerships, our programs help young people overcome barriers to employment and prepare for the changing world of work, provide entrepreneurship training and support for Veterans, and address climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Our work is inspired by our Founder and President, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, and is driven by his vision for a more sustainable future.

“I have dedicated much of my life to the restoration of harmony between humanity, nature and the environment, and to the encouragement of corporate social and environmental sustainability.”

Our core program focus areas:

Our Strategic Plan for 2020-2025 has five objectives: Preparing young people and Veterans for the transforming world of work; Championing sustainable solutions for a green recovery; Empowering our people and our partnerships; Delivering Impact; and Investing in the future.

For 2020-2021, our program areas within the strategic plan include:

Youth Employment
We help young people overcome obstacles, build confidence and reach their potential so that they can survive and thrive in the rapidly changing world of work.

Military Transition
We offer the Canadian military community the training, tools and resources they need to build confidence, develop networks and start their own businesses.

Sustainability intersects across all areas of our work and includes providing opportunities for young people to discover and prepare for new careers in the green economy.





Prince’s Trust Canada is a member of The Prince’s Trust Group – a global network of The Prince’s charities that provides meaningful support for young people, Veterans, Indigenous communities and environmental projects around the world.

June 2020 – HRH The Prince of Wales delivered a message to supporters of Prince’s Trust Canada and called attention to the devastating economic and social impact the COVID-19 crisis is having on young people and communities around the world.

As a member of The Prince’s Trust Group, we are pleased to support The Great Reset, an initiative launched by HRH The Prince of Wales and the World Economic Forum to ensure sustainability is at the heart of COVID-19 recovery efforts. This movement has been supported by many leaders including Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde.

“I am very happy that Prince’s Trust Canada and Loblaw gave us this opportunity. Usually what happens when you apply for a job is that your resume just gets stacked up and you don’t really get an opportunity.”
