Fitzpatrick Award Scotiabank

The Fitzpatrick Award is named for our founder and is the highest recognition that we bestow to an organization.

Since 2005, Scotiabank has been a generous supporter of Frontier College’s signature fundraising events, the Scotiabank Giller Light Bash and the Scrabble® Corporate Challenge. The Scotiabank Giller Light Bash—Canada’s most popular alternative Giller Prize party—has become a must-attend literary event. Through this rewarding partnership, Scotiabank and Frontier College have been working together to celebrate Canadian literature and improve literacy in Canadian communities.

The Companion Award is the highest recognition that we bestow to an individual.

Eric Sinclair, President, TMX Datalinx and Group Head of Information Services, has demonstrated exceptional leadership in literacy through his volunteerism and financial support.

Our largest fundraiser, the Scrabble® Corporate Challenge, has experienced continued growth thanks to Eric’s natural ability to motivate and lead. Since its inception, this special event has raised $3.4M for Frontier College. Eric has opened doors and made important and valued connections, which helped to increase the profile of Frontier College, and inspire people to donate and get involved.
