TPL Scotiabank Expedition:
Partnering business leaders and ill & injured soldiers for a life-changing experience.
Since 2012, TPL has produced ambitious expeditions around the world, which have directly impacted the lives of 51 Canadian Armed Forces members and engaged 76 influential Canadian business leaders. These expeditions have raised an incredible $6 million in funding for Veterans’ transition. Funds raised have allowed for enhanced job training and recruitment, provided 144 Veterans with rapid job placement, helped to fund more than 8,400 hours of peer-to-peer mental health counselling, and allowed for a $500,000 investment to create a virtual reality therapy program for Veterans living with PTSD which is now being used across the country.
We’re thrilled to announce the next adventure in our expedition series –
TPL Scotiabank Expedition: Himalayas 2018.
2018 marks the 65th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary’s iconic first ascent of Mount Everest. To mark the anniversary, Peter Hillary, Sir Edmund’s son and two-time Everest conqueror himself, will guide a group of True Patriot Love expeditioners on a once-in-a-lifetime trek to Everest Base Camp. After reaching Everest Base Camp, the team will ascend the 20,000ft. peak Lobuche East, which sits next to Mount Everest in Nepal.
Leading the expedition will be Everest enthusiast and acclaimed documentary film maker Ben Webster, and his experienced team of western and Sherpa mountaineering guides, providing rare and privileged access into the Sherpa culture and Hillary legacy.
We are currently seeking committed business leaders and Canadian Armed Forces members to join this incredible journey as part of True Patriot Love’s Himalayas 2018 Expedition team.

“I have learned more from our Veterans on these expeditions about bravery, patriotism, service and a commitment to leaving no one behind than from any activity I have undertaken. Our Vets are truly inspirational.”
