Wolseley Canada announced the Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary, to help Indigenous students across Canada 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.

“This is an important day to reflect on history, and to consider how we can better support Indigenous communities,” says Sebastien Laforge, president, Wolseley Canada. “The Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary, plays a role in doing exactly that.”

The Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary is part of the Building Brighter Futures program, and provides funding for individual First Nation, Inuit and Metis students enrolled in full and part time studies in college, university, skilled trades, apprenticeships, and technology programs.
