Earlier this year, George was selected to join Oprah Winfrey on her seven-city Canadian tour, "An Evening with Oprah," where he interviewed the media icon on-stage in front of live audiences of up to fifteen thousand people each night.

George is a passionate advocate of many social and environmental issues and has been an active supporter of numerous causes throughout his career. He is the first Canadian National Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme, and was one of three Canadians recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader for 2012. He was also a driving force behind Canada for Haiti, a live benefit that raised more than $27 million for Haitian earthquake victims, and One Million Acts of Green, which saw Canadians register 1.6 million "acts of green" on the official website.
