Enabling the Realization of Dreams

We support people and organizations that focus on our four pillars: Family, Environment, Engineering and Education. This allows us to make a positive contribution to Canadians everywhere.
We help charities that support children and their families in times of need, and we help fund programs that create learning opportunities for families as a whole.

    Honda Canada Hits a Home Run with Fans at the Toronto Blue Jays™ Honda Home Opener

    April 11, 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Honda Canada knocked it out of the park at the sold-out Toronto Blue Jays™ Honda Home Opener last night, awarding three baseball fans with incredible prizes. As a proud supporter of the Toronto Blue Jays since 1977, Honda kicked-off the 2017 baseball season by giving away a Canadian-built 2017 Honda CR-V. Ten fans were randomly selected during the game and through a process of elimination, three (3) finalists competed for the grand prize while a sold-out crowd cheered them on.

    With the help of Toronto Blue Jays mascot, Ace, Ravinder Basanti-Johal of Oakville, Ontario left the Rogers Centre as the proud owner of the brand new Honda CR-V. The remaining two semi-finalists each received a Honda lawnmower, just in time to make their yard look as good as the outfield.
