Urban fruit harvesters in Toronto, rural island social entrepreneurs and carbon-cutting business: the Tides Top 10 initiatives for 2011

TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2011 - Tides Canada, the country's largest public foundation dedicated to the environment and social justice, announced this year's Tides Top 10 last night at Urbanspace Gallery in Toronto. The award recognizes outstanding environmental and social justice initiatives in Canada.

The recipients hail from coast to coast to coast. Each is working on unique challenges, from picking fruit from urban fruit trees in Toronto to kick-starting social enterprise on Fogo Island off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Yet, they are all building innovative solutions to complex social and environmental issues facing Canadians today.

"It's remarkable to see so many social change visionaries, from all across Canada, together in one room. The Tides Top 10 initiatives are each having incredible impact on their communities and our country as a whole." said Ross McMillan, President and CEO of Tides Canada.
