MPC Foundation (previously known as MPowerCanada) has been delivering impactful services and programs for seniors and older adults, while working alongside non-profits and community organizations to build capacities to achieve collective impact.
Our founders are accomplished individuals with over 25 years of collective experience in the non-profit sector and solid track records in program, operational, and executive management. They chose the name MPowerCanada or MPC as a homage to Canada, and gratitude to this country for the opportunities provided to reach our respective potentials. In return, we give back by serving those in need.
We are focussed on creating and delivering programs and services to mitigate older adults' social isolation by creating community-based social hubs. We achieve that by:
extensive relationship building with community-based organizations
active use of community-based volunteers
serving older adults right in the community
innovation in program design & delivery to achieve meaningful impact
Aging should be celebrated, as older adults have innumerable assets and wisdom to contribute to the enrichment of society. We want older adults to feel valued, and to lead happy, fulfilled lives.
We empower older adults to be catalysts for change in society while advocating for older adult wellness and increasing awareness of their valuable contributions to society.
We believe that older adults have unique contributions to make as community members, and that efforts must be made to advocate for and raise awareness of the benefits seniors provide to society.
The founders of MPC Foundation are Mae Chun & Lily Kwok, both immigrants to this country with successful professional careers. We are grateful for what this country has done for us, our family and friends. Hence we chose the name MPC, an acronym for MPowerCanada, meaning to empower Canada. This is our homage to Canada and our way of giving back to this country by serving those in need. In short, we are grateful.
Recently, our Co-CEO, Mae Chun was nominated by CBC for her dedication to seniors' wellness:
