By Anthony Capkun
December 3, 2014 – Smart Reno—an online resource that helps “people find and compare qualified and available contractors to complete their renovation project”—has introduced the Smart Reno Scholarship Program to help create the next generation of trusted and skilled contractors.
The home improvement industry plays a significant role in the overall Canadian economy, says Smart Reno:
• An industry of more than $50 billion per year in Canada
• 30% of households have done home improvement projects in the last year
• The average project value is $11,500
• 70% of home improvement projects are done by contractors
“We are proud to award a scholarship for the amount of $1000 among students that demonstrate strong motivation to acquire the skills required in the home renovation field,” says the company.
The deadline for applications is April 30, 2015. The winner will be announced May 10, 2015.
