Tides Top 10 for 2011

For 2011, our Tides Top 10 features a diverse range of initiatives from coast to coast to coast across Canada. Each is working on specific challenges, yet they are all building innovative solutions to complex social and environmental issues facing Canadians today.

The Tides Top 10 inspire people to take action, to think in new ways and to make the world a better place. View the recipient profiles below to find out why we think they are outstanding Canadian change makers.
