AMAPCEO is pleased to announce the winners of the AMAPCEO Bursary Program. To mark the inaugural year of the program, two recipients were selected from each District for this year only.

This year’s recipients are attending educational institutions across Ontario and Quebec in both undergraduate and graduate programs. The areas of study for this year’s winners include business, commerce, education, music, interior decorating, aerospace engineering, communications, and kinesiology.

As Ontario’s professional employees, and with more than 80% of our members possessing degrees, AMAPCEO is a strong proponent of education, training, and professional development. We were heartened by the number of applications we received, and we believe the interest in this program is proof positive of the value of education to the next generation of Ontarians.
