Why Loran

Loran builds meaningful, positive change across Canada and beyond by empowering young people with curiosity, integrity, and the dedication to uplift their communities.

We believe that identifying such promising young people means looking beyond grades to find students with character—those who show courage by pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo; display a commitment to service that improves the lives of others; and demonstrate intrinsic leadership potential.

“I was dissatisfied with the systems in place and pursued an active role in student advocacy during my first year of undergrad. Loran inspires me to be the change I want to see and to take initiative.”

Sofie Fournier (’22)
Ottawa, ON
