Paper Excellence donated $50,000 to Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships, and Awards program which was then matched by the Government of Canada bringing the total to $100,000. Indspire provides funding to Indigenous students in full and part time studies in college, university, skilled trades, apprenticeships, and technology programs. Since 1996, Indspire has provided over $217 million in financial support through more than 66,000 bursaries, scholarships and awards to First Nations, Inuit and Métis students.
“The work that Indspire does to support Indigenous students in their educational journey is an excellent fit with our own ambitions as a company and speaks to our role in reconciliation,” said Lana Wilhelm, Director, Indigenous Relations.
