The Max Bell Foundation has funded many endeavours across the country for a wide range of charitable purposes that benefit Canadian society as a whole. An emphasis is placed upon education, health and wellness and the environment. Despite the wide range of funding, the primary purpose of the Foundation has remained constant across all areas. The underlying goal is to support innovative endeavours that encourage the development of human potential in pursuit of educational, social and economic goals.
