The Weston Family Foundation invests in innovation and learning to deliver measurable impacts to the well-being of Canadians. We take a collaborative approach to philanthropy, working alongside forward-thinking partners to advance Canada and create lasting benefits.
Our Focus Areas
More than 60 years of philanthropy has taught us that there’s a relationship between healthy people and healthy landscapes.
That’s why we champion world-class health research and innovation with the same passion that we support initiatives that protect and restore biodiversity.
Our Healthy Aging strategy aims to catalyze and scale science-based approaches to significantly improve the health of Canadians.
Our Healthy Ecosystems strategy aims to restore and protect biodiversity on Canada’s wild, agricultural and urban landscapes.
In addition to our two focus areas, we also fund a number of projects that contribute to a vibrant and resilient Canada.
New $10M program seeks to increase soil organic matter on agricultural lands
Six-year challenge aims to build the resilience of Canada’s food system
New research projects awarded after a rigorous review process
