150 EXTRAORDINARY CANADIANS
Our Leadership And Innovation Legacy Book
TORONTO, June 27, 2018 /CNW/ - The 150 Extraordinary Canadians: Our Leadership And Innovation Legacy, is a book that inspires present and future generations. The diverse success stories commemorate Canada's 150th anniversary and more. The contemporary achievers are also highlighted in television biographies, a documentary film and interstitials, as a part of the Envision Canada initiative. Their achievements are in the community, corporate and public sectors. A panel under the direction of the Transformation Institute For Leadership & Innovation, and Silvertrust Media, the parent company of Envision Magazine, other publishing, broadcasting and special initiatives, selected them.
The Transformation Institute has set itself apart as the guardian of equitable collective memory. Since 2010, the institute's Transformation Awards program has celebrated leaders and innovation. Many of the achievers in the book have been honoured at the gala or featured in the magazine. The 150 achievers are role models who are encouraged to mentor youth in the Crossover Mentorship Program, deliver life-changing lectures or support other causes in their respective communities. They inspire, transform, empower, showcase, celebrate and integrate various elements of our mosaic. The book features sections with our collective Canadian vision, mission, values, spirit, unity and success, beautifully designed with captivating photography.
Published for the Transformation Institute by Silvertrust Media, the book features a special message by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, underscoring the need for such a unique publication.
