While Marshall has made his mark on a menagerie of industries, auto, aviation, real estate, film production, construction, and health, to name a few, it is his philanthropic work benefitting children and the community that is perhaps his most fulfilling endeavor.
Brent’s determination to have all of his companies donate to charity has allowed him to construct a Children’s Wing on the UNBC hospital, an outdoor patio for a paediatric ward, a Cancer Lodge Family Room, an outdoor all-wheels park for kids, and large donations to over 30 other charities.
Marshall has orchestrated the donation of nearly $5 million dollars to charities these past 15 years, earning him the title of “The Face of Philanthropy“.
Chris Dias of The Scene Magazine profiles Brent Marshall’s illustrious history of philanthropy, with a focus on his involvement with children’s charities and investments in local businesses. And the Marvel metaphor? Well, Canadian Stark is the kind of moniker you tend to earn when you also just happen to race supercars and own jetpacks.
I believe it’s socially responsible for every successful business to give back to their community in some way, and help support others who may not be having the same success or luck in their lives. I have found the success of each of my companies is in large part due to our commitment to giving back this attracts incredible people into our lives.
– Brent Marshall, speaking of the Kelowna Sunrise Rotary Club.
We all need to challenge ourselves to give back what we can. The community gives us and our neighbours so much, it’s really the least we can do.
– Brent Marshall, speaking of Mamas for Mamas.
BMX was a big thing when I was a kid growing up in Eastern BC. The local contractors and business owners got together and built us this big BMX park and I remember all the good memories and how much time we spent there.

“Some guys just love their jobs, love life, and their communities. It shows up not only in their words, but in their actions. Brent Marshall, the dealer principal with Northland Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Prince George, B.C. is clearly one of those guys.”
