Wolseley Canada has announced a new Indigenous Bursary, with goals to help Indigenous students across Canada reach their full potential with funding for post-secondary education.

The Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary is part of the Building Brighter Futures program, and is aiming to provide 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.

Part of the announcement will see Wolseley donate $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,” said Sebastien Laforge, President, Wolseley Canada. “The Wolseley Canada Indigenous Bursary, plays a role in doing exactly that.”
