Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and its members are proud to support Canadian university and college students reach their academic goals providing $154,000 across 57 scholarships. This initiative has supported students with over $1 million in funding since the program started in 1994.

Canadian university and college students are shown the electrical industry as a viable career choice in Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Finance, Management, Operations, Information Technology, Logistics and Human Resources.

“Thanks to members from across the Canadian electrical and electronics industries, the EFC scholarships provide support for bright Canadian talents pursuing careers in the electrical industry. The EFC scholarships also attract young talent to the electrical industry and in turn ensure that Canada is positioned as a leader in this field,” said Joris Myny, Chair 2017 EFC Scholarship Program and Senior Vice President, Digital Factory and Process Industries & Drives Divisions, Siemens Canada.
