  • Candidates can register for and attend WFG workshop(s) of their choice
  • $5,000 in bursaries are available annually and will be awarded throughout the year
  • Bursary recipients can only take up to (6) workshops in a calendar year and must re-apply for each workshop they wish to attend
  • There are no deadlines for this fund – applications are always accepted

*Indigenous peoples, for the purposes of this program, include Status, Non-Status, Métis and Inuit people. Diverse Cultural Background refers to persons of African, Asian, Latin American or Middle Eastern origin.
