Get to know Ron personally through the rewards available in this Time Auction. You will find that in addition to being a sharp entrepreneur and kind philanthropist, he is also a down-to-earth guy that is fun to be with.

Ronald V. Joyce is best known as the legendary Canadian entrepreneur who, in 1964, invested in the first Tim Hortons donut shop in Hamilton, Ontario and then grew the business into one of the most successful food service chains in the world. Co-Founder of the TDL Group Ltd. which licenses Tim Hortons restaurants in Canada and around the world, Ron sold the quintessential Canadian business to Wendy's International Inc. in 1996.

Born in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia in 1930, Ron has won numerous awards and honors for his entrepreneurial successes, commitment to strong corporate citizenship and unwavering philanthropic work: The Order of Canada, honouring his dedication to underprivileged children and youth; induction into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame; Entrepreneur of the Year for Ontario and Canada; the Gary Wright Humanitarian Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the betterment of community life as founder of the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation; and the Red Cross Humanitarian of the Year Award. His achievements have also earned him several honorary doctoral degrees from universities, including McMaster, Queen’s, Mount Allison, St. Mary’s, Cape Breton, Niagara Falls, and the University of Calgary.

Ron remains actively involved in The Joyce Foundation, as well as his Hamilton-based executive charter airline company, Jetport. He divides his time between his homes in Alberta, Ontario, and Wallace, Nova Scotia – the picturesque location of Fox Harb'r, his luxury golf resort. One of the world’s most magnificent five-star resorts, this 400-hectare oasis is steeped in natural beauty and rich in maritime hospitality.

Ron brings to these latest endeavours the same work ethic, business acumen, passion and deep personal commitment behind the success of the Tim Hortons empire.
