President and CEO, Easter Seals Ontario
The Ontario Restaurant’s Trillium Award Newsmaker of the Year in 2013 and a two-time recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, Kevin J. Collins has brought philanthropy to the forefront in the hospitality industry. As a child with cerebral palsy, Collins benefited from Easter Seals’ camp programs and pledged to give back, doing so as executive director of Friends of We Care, the industry’s charitable arm, which sends physically disabled children to camp. After successfully tripling the organization’s donor base and raising $20.5-million over his career, he was appointed to his current role as president and CEO of Easter Seals Ontario in 2017.
