A word from our scholarship recipients and donors

"There is a saying where I come from that goes: “A fish’s strength is water.” Likewise, the Foundation’s strength is all the generous donors who believe in our ability to excel. This $10,000 scholarship not only gives me more motivation, but also the courage to achieve my goal and provide a better life for my family."

Dirissa Diassana

Université de Sherbrooke, Assistance towards success scholarship

"The CPA designation has opened a lot of doors for me and allowed me to enjoy a really wonderful career. Today, encouraging the pursuit of education and promoting academic excellence is my way of helping others achieve their dreams and ensuring that there is an up-and-coming generation of CPAs."

Roch Leblanc, FCPA, FCA

Donor, Emeritus Philanthropists' Circle, Corporate Director

“The scholarship I received from the Foundation has eased the financial burden of going back to school. The CPA designation will allow me to find or create a job for myself in line with my goals in our wonderful northern Lanaudière region. Your donations have not only helped a student, but also a small family whose future is wide open.”
