John Vincett Responsible Care Award

by Women Building Futures | Feb 23, 2021

Women Building Futures and Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) are proud to announce the John Vincett Responsible Care Award. John Vincent (CIAC)

This award was inspired by the legacy of John Philip Vincett, a prominent champion of the Responsible Care Initiative in Canada’s chemistry sector. Responsible Care requires companies to engage with communities near facilities and along transportation corridors, emergency responders, governments, and other stakeholders to advance laws and regulations supporting sustainability. This award has been created with the generous support of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada and will provide financial relief to Indigenous women who attend our programs.

“On behalf of John, we are deeply honoured to acknowledge the CIAC contribution in his name to Women Building Futures (WBF). John brought integrity, thoughtfulness and commitment to all his endeavours, including his early career working with remote First Nations in Northern Ontario, and his many years working to support and expand Responsible Care. WBF is an organization that embodies John’s values and principles in its goal to empower women, and Indigenous communities through support of training and apprenticeships in the skilled trades.”
