Chairman's Message

Creating Awareness and Opportunity for Canadian Students

Connie Chabot
Chair, EFC Scholarship Committee

The EFC Scholarship Program exemplifies an industry that understands its responsibility to attract future talent. In the face of technological, demographic, and socio-economic evolution, the employment landscape is in constant transformation resulting in substantial challenges for companies as they work to define and redefine their recruitment practices. Furthermore, as competition for the brightest and the best of the next generation of business leaders intensifies, it’s more important than ever to engage young people. Members of the Canadian Electrical Industry have ‘joined hands’ since 1995 to create awareness and opportunity for Canadian students by taking their stories to universities, colleges, and vocational education centers.

On behalf the Electro Federation Canada Scholarship committee, I am pleased to announce that the program continues to demonstrate growth in 2018, offering a record amount of $156,250 translating into 62 individual scholarships available to Canadian students. The participating companies listed in this brochure are leading manufacturers, distributors, agency-representatives, and associations within the industry, offering a vast array of dynamic career opportunities at all levels of their organizations. Their dedication to the program demonstrates a commitment to corporate social responsibility both within and outside the industry.

Students are invited to explore all the exciting scholarship opportunities at Being an EFC Scholarship recipient is often the first step in opening doors to engaging dialogue with industry members, as well as exciting internship and employment opportunities. Don't wait ... apply now and be the next worthy recipient of an EFC Scholarship -

Thank you to all the committee members who dedicated their time and effort to achieve the program goals, and thank you to all participating members who have made this initiative possible for over 23 years now.
