Scholarships

The Canada Company Scholarship Fund was created in recognition of the selfless sacrifice that Canada’s brave military personnel make in the service of their country and in tribute to the children they have left behind.

Initially, in 2007, CIBC provided leadership funding in the amount of $1 million. Canada Company also secured financial support from Peter Munk, Founder and Chairman of Barrick Gold Corporation; James Balsillie, Former Co-Chief Executive Officer of Research In Motion (RIM); R B & H Inc.; Paul Desmarais, President and Co-CEO of Power Corporation of Canada; the W. Garfield Weston Foundation; Bank of Montreal; Scotiabank; Standard Life Assurance Company of Canada and from AGF Management Limited. Over the past years, generous members of the public have added to the fund in their own efforts to recognize the appreciation they hold for the men and women in uniform who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In 2016, with a response to the ever-evolving needs of the Canadian Armed Forces and its members, Canada Company announced an enhancement to the Scholarship Fund. An initial contribution of $100,000 from the Canada Company Board of Directors has since been matched by TD, Scotiabank, RBC and BMO, bringing the total additional funding up to $500,000. These additional contributions have made it possible for Canada Company to enhance its Scholarship Fund to include the children of serving military members who have taken their own lives, as deemed attributable to their military service. The current terms of reference may be viewed here.

Canada Company oversees the fund and is supported by an independent Scholarship Fund Oversight Committee to ensure that bereaved children have the opportunity to receive scholarship grants for their post-secondary education. This oversight committee also determines the eligibility criteria, disburses the funds and makes recommendations to Canada Company for future funding requirements.

The Canada Company Scholarship Fund provides up to $4,000 per year for up to four years to support the post-secondary education for children who qualify.
