A Million Futures
It was a dazzling model of efficiency and political prowess. It overcame the steep obstacles facing federal programs in Canada. And, in its short life, the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation funded and empowered more than a million young Canadians. Created in 1998, the Foundation awarded scholarships and bursaries to create post-secondary opportunities for deserving students. Its innovative partnering with the provinces provided a stellar example of how to make a federal program work. Consummate storyteller Silver Donald Cameron takes us inside a unique and transformative institution. Inspiring, funny and deeply moving, A Million Futures interweaves the Foundation's remarkable history with the stories of the lives it touched.
