An Algonquin release states that the donation will fund scholarships for students in transportation, manufacturing and construction. The students will also receive ongoing social and career support. “This incredible opportunity to partner with W. Garfield Weston Foundation will allow our learners to succeed in their chosen fields,” said Algonquin President Cheryl Jensen. “We know how skilled trades programs and the apprenticeship learning model provide opportunities for people to make a difference in our communities – and the Foundation is generously making that a reality for a new generation with this multi-year program.”
