We are always looking for new insights into the Canadian story and innovative ways to share it here in the UK.

  • We welcome enquiries from organisations and individuals with projects of potential interest to the Canada-UK Foundation as well as groups who wish to play a sponsorship role.
  • As part of our efforts to expand our research directions, we are currently seeking your thoughts on where the Foundation can go next.
  • From art exhibitions to research projects, fashion to physics, if you would like to be involved in the Canada-UK Foundation, in any capacity, please contact us to start a discussion.
