February 12, 2016 – Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and its members have launched the 2016 EFC Scholarship Program, providing $136,000 in financial support to university and college students.

“This program addresses the need to engage bright young talent in our industry and to demonstrate the Canadian electrical industry as a viable career choice. It also provides an opportunity for students to interact with EFC members and learn about innovation in our industry,” said Joris Myny, chair of the 2016 program and a senior VP with Siemens Canada.

Now entering its 21st year, 53 scholarships will be awarded this September. Since inception the program has funded Canadian university and college students’ education with over $1 million, according to EFC, and is one of the largest scholarship programs in the country.

“This is a great initiative for EFC members to promote in their organizations encouraging their employees with children in university and college to apply for these scholarships. It also provides a strong corporate social responsibility component for these participating companies”, added John Jefkins, with EFC.
