Patron

We are honoured that His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, became the Patron of our newly re-branded organization in August 2012.

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada

MediaSmarts’ vision that children and youth have the critical thinking skills to engage with media as active and informed digital citizens aligns perfectly with two pillars of His Excellency’s mandate: supporting families and children and reinforcing learning and innovation.

In 1995, the organization was honoured to have His Excellency, the Right Honourable Roméo Leblanc, Governor General of Canada, as its founding patron.
