The Weston Family Foundation is pleased to share the Weston Family Scholarship in the Skilled Trades Report—a summary of our findings after many years of supporting students undertaking college-based training of post-secondary pre-apprenticeship diplomas, certificates and apprenticeships within the framework of our scholarship program. The report was created in collaboration with the participating colleges: Algonquin College, Camosun College, Conestoga College, Durham College and Loyalist College, to be used as a tool for potential future skilled trades programming and funding. The Weston Family Scholarship in the Skilled Trades Program was developed as a model to encourage success from start to finish, giving students additional support in their skilled trades career journey.
After more than a decade of supporting skilled trades education in Canada, the Foundation is sunsetting the Weston Family Scholarship in the Skilled Trades program in 2022. The Foundation hopes that the learnings shared in the report will help inspire similar skilled trades funding in the future.
