Mark Saldanha is the founder and CEO of Greater Love Canada, a youth-founded, and youth-led organization dedicated to serving the marginalized in Canada. Greater Love aims to throw away the ‘throw-away’ culture by building lifelong friendships with those experiencing homelessness 

Greater Love has grown to over eight locations coast to coast and transformed how Canadians think about homelessness. 

Mark holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Dalhousie, recently completed his MBA at Queen’s University, and is currently an associate at Royal Bank of Canada. He has worked with executives and directors from Sobeys and the Anaheim Ducks (NHL) gaining board approval for long-term strategic plans.  

Mark has received the Red Cross Young Humanitarian of the Year award, and the YMCA’s Peace Medal for national leadership. He brings bold thinking and insight to community relations and is looking forward to working with the board to further the Y’s strategic goals for the city.
