2019 Canadian Champion Award Honouree:
Mr. Beedie is recognized for the outstandingly generous contributions towards scholarship he has made over the years. As a forward-thinking, astute businessman, Ryan has led Beedie to immense success in the worlds of condo building and industrial operation, but he is perhaps just as well known for being at the forefront of colossal local philanthropic activities. Aimed at helping those who might otherwise fall through the cracks or not reach their full potential, Mr. Beedie made a staggering fifty million dollar donation towards his landmark Beedie Luminaries Scholarship Program. With the full picture in mind, his commitment wasn’t just through money, he has coupled financial with social support, thereby ensuring successful applicants are given the full opportunity that they perhaps weren’t born into. Initiatives like this are the essence of Together We Can, and the impact of his contributions with be carrying on for generations.
Ryan, thank you for all that you do.
