Fred George is an extraordinarily successful businessman, a proud Nova Scotian, and one of Canada’s greatest philanthropists.
Mr. George immigrated to Nova Scotia when he was 19, with a dream of making a better life for his family. He grew his Halifax mining company into the largest gold and silver producer in Mexico. He is listed among Canada’s top ten CEOs, receiving numerous business awards, including the Life Time Achievement Award from the Mining Society of Nova Scotia.
To inspire the next generation of leaders, Mr. George frequently gives lectures to university business students. In recognition of his contributions, Saint Mary’s University conferred upon him an Honorary Doctorate of Commerce. Mr. George has also earned a high level of respect from his peers for both his business success and community leadership and was invited by former President Bill Clinton to sit on his Foundation Board.
Mr. George supports many causes, giving generously of his time and knowledge. He helped to build a new school for Bridgeway Academy, a local school for students with learning disabilities. The Fred George Gymnasium at the Sacred Heart School of Halifax and the Fred George Leadership Course at St. Francis Xavier University recognize his contributions.
Mr. George has long supported the navy, veterans, military families, and Canada’s peacekeeping efforts. For his dedication, he was appointed Honorary Captain of the Royal Canadian Navy and travelled to Afghanistan with Canada’s military leaders to support our men and women in uniform.
