When leaders at the Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto first got the idea of giving out scholarships to deserving co-op members, their goal was one scholarship a year. They blew past that goal in no time at all. Since launching the CHFT Diversity Scholarships in 2004 they’ve assisted 260 students with their post-secondary education. The scholarships emphasize community involvement and commitment to diversity.

Iler Campbell is proud to be among the over 60 companies, organizations and individuals which together have donated over $1.2 million to help make this happen. College and university partners have granted a further $300,000. Several of our staff had the privilege of attending this year’s scholarship event at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts on June 29 which saw awards given out to this year’s 28 winners.

The success of this project has led to its recent expansion across Canada. In partnership with CHF Canada, a further $200,000 in scholarships have been given out to students living in co-ops in Ontario, British Columbia, Manitoba and Nova Scotia.
