2019 Society Scholarships Announced

The Society is proud to once again support the educational pursuits of our Members’ and Pensioners’ children and grandchildren as they attend a post-secondary institution of higher learning. A good education is the cornerstone of helping the next generation reach their full potential so that they can both secure a good job and help to improve our society as a whole.  

This year the Society, in conjunction with the Pensioners’ Chapter, awarded 32 scholarships to assist with the costs of pursuing post-secondary education. The Society gave out 10 scholarships worth $1,500 and 20 for $1,000. One of the Pensioners' Chapter scholarships is worth $1,500 while the other is worth $1,000.

With almost 200 applicants, competition for the scholarships was stiff. Winners were scored based on their current volunteer work, a personal statement describing the applicant's interest in impacting their community or broader society, as well as a short essay on the Canadian labour movement. Qualified applicants' submissions were assessed by a committee after applicants names had been removed to ensure objectivity.
