Our People

Founded in 2007, The Princess Auto Foundation had a clear goal in mind – to enhance education and provide opportunities to future tradesmen and tradeswomen. Since its inception, The Princess Auto Foundation has distributed over 4 million dollars in bursaries to Canadian Colleges.

The PAF’s growth is attributed to Princess Auto Ltd. fundraising events that are held across Canada every year.
