For Mental Health Week, we are showcasing an inspiring Canadian. Robb Nash is a singer and musician from Winnipeg, who walked away from a record deal to devote his efforts to helping distressed youth. At the age of 17, headed toward a brilliant career, he almost lost his life in a car accident. After a difficult recovery, and despite significant physical and emotional scars, he was left with a new outlook on life. That’s when he decided to start up the Robb Nash Project, a group that uses music and powerful lyrics to motivate and inspire youth to make positive life choices. By sharing his own experience with over a million students and addressing sensitive topics such as suicide, depression and addiction, Robb has literally saved lives. Congratulations to this everyday hero, who continues to break the stigma around mental health, one note at a time.

Dans le cadre de la Semaine de la santĂ© mentale, nous vous prĂ©sentons un Canadien inspirant : Robb Nash. Ce chanteur et musicien, originaire de Winnipeg, a renoncĂ© Ă  un contrat d’enregistrement pour aider les jeunes en dĂ©tresse. Alors qu’il avait dĂ©jĂ  une brillante carriĂšre devant lui, Nash a presque perdu la vie dans un accident de voiture Ă  l’ñge de 17 ans. AprĂšs une convalescence difficile et malgrĂ© de graves cicatrices physiques et Ă©motionnelles, cette expĂ©rience a donnĂ© un nouveau sens Ă  sa vie. C’est alors qu’il a dĂ©cidĂ© de crĂ©er le Robb Nash Project, un groupe qui utilise la musique et des paroles percutantes pour motiver et inspirer les jeunes Ă  faire des choix de vie positifs. En partageant sa propre expĂ©rience avec plus d’un million d’étudiants et en abordant des sujets sensibles tels que le suicide, la dĂ©pression et la dĂ©pendance, Robb a littĂ©ralement sauvĂ© des vies. FĂ©licitations Ă  ce hĂ©ros du quotidien qui continue de briser les tabous reliĂ©s Ă  la santĂ© mentale, une note Ă  la fois.

At a time when climate change is at the heart of public debate, Kevin Davies, a 26-year-old entrepreneur, has decided to take concrete action to reduce the carbon footprint. After his dog was poisoned with chemical fertilizers, Kevin realized the dangers associated with this industry. This unfortunate event and his research into the amount of waste generated by restaurants and companies led him to launch @hopcompost. Based in Calgary, his ecological business is the first inner-city compost facility in Canada. By using modern technologies and centralizing his operations, more than 7 million pounds of waste have been recycled. His concept is now successful, not only in his hometown, but also in Vancouver and soon Toronto. In fact, he plans to expand his operations in several North American cities. Through his company and his involvement, Kevin Davies has innovated for the well-being of the population and the planet.
