October 26, 2021 – Wolseley Canada—a wholesaler of plumbing, HVAC&R, and industrial products—announced the Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary to help Indigenous students with funding for post-secondary education.
In partnership with Indspire, Wolseley has donated $25,000, which will be matched by the Government of Canada, for a total of $50,000.
Indspire is an Indigenous national charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. The bursary was launched on September 30, the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation.
“This is an important day to reflect on history, and to consider how we can better support Indigenous communities,” said Sebastien Laforge, president, Wolseley Canada.
The Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary is part of Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards program, and provides funding for individual First Nation, Inuit and Métis students enrolled in full- and part-time studies in college, university, skilled trades, apprenticeships, and technology programs.
