The CIW’s success has a lot to do with the passion of the Honourable Roy J. Romanow. Following his work on the Royal Commission, he signed on with the CIW, as Founding Co-Chair of the Advisory Board, for what became ten years of powerful ‘nation-building’ speeches across this country and around the world. He saw the CIW as reflecting the notion of shared destiny. And that by using the CIW, we can break silos, look beyond short-term bottom lines, work from what binds us together rather than what drives us apart, and build new ways to shine the spotlight on what matters to Canadians. We thank Roy for inspiring the CIW Network to continue to promote wellbeing as the lens for decision-making in Canada.
