CGOV Foundation

This scholarship was established in 2016 through Rob and Lisanne’s generosity. They became supporters of community-based development in the Matawa First Nation through Rob’s prior role as Chair and President of the Ring of Fires Infrastructure Development Corporation and through many wonderful canoe trips in northern Ontario and Canada.
