Sandi Treliving is a dedicated philanthropist, an advocate for mental health, a supporter of Canadian arts and culture, and a champion of healthy living. These passions, skills and beliefs are matched with a wealth of knowledge and expertise gained from a long and successful career in retail banking.
Like many Canadians, Sandi has been directly impacted by mental illness (her brother lives with schizophrenia), which inspired her to dedicate her time and resources to various mental health initiatives. In 2014, she became a Director on CAMH Foundation’s Board and in 2020 she and her family became founding funders of CAMH’s womenmind, a community of philanthropists committed to closing the gender gap in mental health.
Sandi sits on the Advisory Council of HXOUSE, a community incubator that helps foster innovation and opportunity for creative entrepreneurs, and is also Chair of the Advisory Board for Telefilm Canada’s Talent to Watch, a private donation fund dedicated to the discovery, development and promotion of Canada’s next generation of emerging filmmakers and content creators.
Sandi and her husband, Jim Treliving, live in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
