Reaffirming our commitment to education
A brighter future starts with the communities we live and work in. Through our partnership with Indspire, we have committed $100k over 3 years to the Wood Indigenous Bursary to support the education and career paths of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis students.
Indspire is a national Indigenous charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people for the long-term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities, and Canada.
Five awards will be distributed to students enrolled in Engineering, Skilled Trades, Business Management, Human Resources, Accounting/Finance programs for students from Whitefish Lake First Nation, Newfoundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan, or Alberta.
Deadlines to enter are:
“Supporting education is pivotal in our reconciliation journey, and it is one area we can focus on to help Indigenous students build their capacity. Our partnership with Indspire allows us to support numerous students across Canada to reach their educational goals and build meaningful long-term change in the communities they live in.”
