What does your donation go towards?
Proceeds raised from the 2016 CVCA Open will support Our Children’s Medicine, a business-led Indigenous employment initiative led by Prince’s Charities Canada in partnership with Birch Hill Equity Partners. As per tradition, the selected charity is decided by the Ted Anderson Community Leadership Award winner. This year, John MacIntyre, partner, Birch Hill Equity Partners, was announced as the award recipient. MacIntyre was recognized for demonstrating active commitment to serving disadvantaged indigenous communities, in particular for his involvement in Our Children’s Medicine.

About Our Children’s Medicine
Our Children’s Medicine is a program designed to help indigenous youth find employment. It is an employment and mentorship initiative led by Prince’s Charities in Canada, in partnership with Birch Hill Equity Partners. The initiative focuses on the value of increasing employment and vital networking opportunities within indigenous communities. Our Children’s Medicine maintains a clear objective: work with top Canadian business leaders and existing indigenous community organizations to provide sustainable employment to talented and qualified job seekers within the community.

The overarching mandate of Our Children’s Medicine is to provide job opportunities to indigenous youth, and to help indigenous youth who aren’t job-ready become job-ready. Birch Hill has also involved its portfolio companies in the cause.

While the cause is only two years old, MacIntyre says Birch Hill is working very hard to build the program to a level where the firm can have wide-reaching impact, helping upwards of 100,000 indigenous job seekers obtain sustainable employment.

Birch Hill maintains Our Children’s Medicine is not a charity exercise, but rather a tangible way for Canadian businesses to help break the cycle of chronic unemployment the continues to challenge the Indigenous community
