A Million Futures

The Remarkable Legacy of the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation

In 1998, hoping to leave a legacy for the new millennium, the federal government created the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation, which has since funded and empowered more than a million young Canadians. The Foundation itself has been a remarkable success story, a model of efficiency and political manoeuvring. The essential feature of the program was its innovative partnering with the provinces, recognizing different approaches to the issue - a stellar example of asymmetrical federalism.

A brilliant, funny and highly entertaining storyteller, Silver Donald Cameron tells the inside story of the Foundationís life, which serves as a case study in astute management practice in the face of serious challenges. Woven into the narrative are the stories of individuals whose lives were affected by the Foundationís programs. Inspiring, funny, heart-breaking and surprising, these tales form the heart of the book. A Million Futures is the definitive testament to a unique, ground-breaking and transformative institution, abounding with useful lessons for organizations of all kinds, and anyone interested in innovative public policy.
