Passion Inc. was founded in 1994 by brothers Mark and Nathan Laurie from their student residence in Halifax, Nova Scotia with $500 in savings and the dream of graduating from Dalhousie University debt-free. While studying full-time, the brothers built a company supplying university residences with free wall calendars that helped students stay organized and allowed advertisers to reach the elusive 18–24-year-old market. Passion Inc. has been ranked by Profit Magazine as one of Canada's fastest growing companies. In 1997 it was the ACE/CIBC Student Entrepreneurs of the Year and in 2000 the BDC recognized us as the Top Young Entrepreneurs in Ontario. That same year the EDC selected Passion Inc. as the Top Young Exporters in Canada. In February 2004, we received the Arthur Kroeger Management Award from Carleton University as a result of our unique business model.

Passion Inc. believes in building its business on making a difference. The two biggest issues Passion Inc. is working on right now are youth employment and the Public School System. We would like Canadians to learn from Passion Inc. and use it as a model for building a different type of company that focuses its energy on social issues. Our rapid growth is proof that the private sector can successfully build a business based on helping people. This theme is woven through our company's fabric and affects every decision we make.

Passion Inc. is made up of two divisions focused on making a difference:
