BeCause & Effect #12: Mark Chipman

Children, Youth & Families

Mark Chipman is a quintessential Winnipegger. As the Executive Chairman of the Board of True North Sports + Entertainment and the Winnipeg Jets, he has devoted most of his professional life to giving back and helping improve the city where he was born and raised.

Along with his wife Patti, Mark has played a major role with the True North Youth Foundation since its inception in 1996, consisting of three core programs, Camp Manitou, Project 11, and the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy.

I sat down with Mark to talk about the Causes he cares about, The Jets & their history and legacy, and the importance of giving back and supporting those in need.
