Prince’s Trust Canada Changes Name to The King’s Trust Canada

Prince’s Trust Canada Changes Name to The King’s Trust Canada

Announces $5 million gift from The Hilary & Galen Weston Foundation

His Majesty The King’s flagship charity has reached an important milestone with the change in name from The Prince’s Trust Canada to The King’s Trust Canada (TKTC) in honour of His Majesty King Charles III’s ascension to the throne. 

While the name may have changed, the commitment to empowering young Canadians remains unwavering. The King's Trust Canada will continue to provide best-in-class skill-building programs, paid work experience and networking opportunities to youth facing barriers. 

The decision to adopt the name of The King's Trust Canada aligns us with other charitable organizations which were founded by His Majesty The King, fostering a sense of unity and collaboration across the Commonwealth.

With a new name and renewed programming, TKTC has a mission of helping 100,000 barriered youth increase their employability, contributing to a more equitable and productive economy and a more sustainable Canada.

In celebration of this new chapter, a group of supporters, partners, and youth participants gathered at our new headquarters.  Chair Emerita, The Honourable Hilary M. Weston, and the Hilary and Galen Weston Foundation announced a gift of $5 million in support of the launch of the organization’s flagship program, 360, a comprehensive youth employment program which will launch in the fall.
