The Trevor Linden Foundation
The goal of the Trevor Linden Foundation is to encourage young people to discover their strengths and realize their potential. We partner with organizations and individuals who are engaged in youth development programs that support our values of integrity, hard work, responsibility and leadership.
The Trevor Linden Foundation, a registered charity, was established in 1997 to support the communities in which Trevor played during his 20-year NHL career. Trevor Linden is one of Canada's most respected athletes, both on and off the ice. Known for his character, leadership and professionalism, he was recognized by his peers with the NHL's King Clancy Memorial Award for Leadership (1997) and the NHL Foundation Player of the year (2008). Both awards recognize NHL players for leadership and significant contributions within their communities and it is these qualities that sum up Trevor Linden's career best. In addition to the honors from the NHL, Trevor has been awarded the Order of British Columbia (2003) and the country's highest honor, member of the Order of Canada (2010).
Over the past 15 years the Trevor Linden Foundation has partnered with charities in British Columbia, Montreal and New York to raise funds and awareness for programs that support the objectives of the foundation. In recent years, the Foundation has grown to focus on programs in undeserved areas in the communities that have supported Trevor throughout his career as a Vancouver Canuck. Local projects include the YMCA-YWCA of the Central Okanagan 'Strong Kids Campaign', the Vancouver Sun's Adopt-a-School Program, The boys Club Network, and, in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks, 'The Trevor Linden Community Spirit Scholarship'.
