We help equity-deserving youth and Veterans secure meaningful employment through training and mentorship.

At Prince’s Trust Canada, we partner with employers and community organizations to provide free skill-building programs and mentoring that prepares you for the transforming world of work.


Our work is inspired by the vision of our Founder, His Majesty King Charles III, guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and powered by generous donors.

Land Acknowledgment  Prince’s Trust Canada’s office is located on the traditional territory of the  Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat First Nation, and The Mississaugas of the Credit  First Nation who are part of the Anishinaabe Nation. We acknowledge these Nations  (and any other recorded or unrecorded Nations who cared for this land) as the original caretakers  and storytellers of this land named Tkaronto, “Where the Trees Meet the Water,” “The Gathering  Place.” We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on territories across Turtle Island,  which is home to many Indigenous Nations, and we commit to honouring and celebrating  the past, present, and future of these Nations.


His Majesty King Charles III is a lifelong champion for youth, Veterans and the environment.    

“For young people, the problem was not nearly the lack of opportunity represented by joblessness but the feeling that they were being left behind and it was clear to me that we should do something to try to make a difference.”

– HMK on the legacy of the Prince’s Trust, May 2023

In 1976, when His Majesty (formerly His Highness The Prince of Wales) completed his duty in the Royal Navy, he came to the prescient conclusion that we needed to invest in youth if we wanted to build a better future.  

His Majesty turned his belief into action by using his Navy severance to fund community initiatives targeted at youth, beginning the Prince’s Trust. 

Near half a century later, the Prince’s Trust, and its international branches, have helped one million young people and Veterans around the world, including here in Canada with the Prince’s Trust Canada (PTC), founded in 2011 by His Majesty the King and The Hon. Hilary Weston.
