Help Shape Your Future Leaders
Why does Minerva need funds?
The only organization of our kind, Minerva Canada is a non-profit volunteer-run organization, aiming to be a global leader in health and safety management education by influencing the curriculum of post-secondary institutions to ensure that future business leaders are equipped to create healthier and safer workplaces.
All resources and activities are provided free of charge to educators. Being a non-profit, we rely on the ongoing financial support from industry, government, and health and safety professional associations to advance our annual educational programs and activities.
Our sponsor organizations know that in order to reduce the human and financial costs of incidents and injuries in order to compete on the global stage, Canada needs an educated workforce and future leaders who are well-rounded problem solvers.
