Imperial Oil Charitable Foundation [1999 - 2004]

Imperial Oil

"The Imperial Oil Charitable Foundation was a proud sponsor of the project at York University for five years. Our focus is on programs that enhance math, science and technology education for Canadian school children. The project's unique, award-winning resources provide educators with the tools they need to provide a high quality experience for their students, and was therefore a perfect candidate for our sponsorship.

This simple-to-use, curriculum based resource is helping to ensure positive attitudes towards science and its use continues to grow, not just in Canada, but around the world. Imperial Oil is pleased to have been a supporter of this important project during its early years."

Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.

Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.

"Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) has had a strong and active interest in promoting the importance of science and technology. Our efforts to increase science literacy among all Canadians, with a special emphasis on students and educators, has led us to seek out partnerships with quality organizations that have demonstrated their ability to deliver effective programs to key audiences. AECL's partnership with the YES I Can! project has proven to be one of the most valued initiatives that the organization has engaged in for more than decade.

The project has enabled AECL to reach out into the educational community in a manner that overshadows any other program we have undertaken. The quality of the staff, the programs they create and the knowledge they possess regarding the educational community is clearly demonstrated through the huge success of the project but perhaps more importantly by their personal commitment and dedication to providing quality, relevant, life long learning tools for students and educators. It is little wonder that the project is an internationally recognized leader among all web based learning tools. AECL is proud to be involved in this project, continues to strongly support their efforts, and encourages others to seriously consider joining this award winning team."
