BURLINGTON, Ontario, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wolseley Canada, in partnership with Indspire, is continuing the program it launched last year to support Indigenous students pursuing post-secondary education.

Kicked off as part of Wolseley Canada’s recognition of Truth and Reconciliation Day, the Wolseley Canada Indigenous Student Bursary was put in place to help Indigenous students across Canada reach their full potential with funding for post-secondary education.

This year, Wolseley has donated another $25,000, which will be matched by the Government of Canada for a total of $50,000.

“Our organization is committed to giving back to the communities where we work and live,” says Kim Forgues, Vice President of Human Resources at Wolseley Canada. “We are proud to be a partner in creating opportunities for Indigenous Canadians.”

For more information about the Wolseley Canada Indigenous Student Bursary, or to apply, visit indspirefunding.ca. Deadlines for applications are November 1, 2022, and February 1, 2023.
