Congratulations to our 2022 Scholarship Winners!

When a family is shaken by a workplace tragedy, so many aspects of their individual and shared lives can be affected: emotional, spiritual, physical, and financial included. The Threads of Life Scholarship – made possible through the generous support and funding of the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) – is a significant support to Threads of Life families, including young workers, looking to build a future through post-secondary education.

Each of the submissions received highlight the aspirations of each student – all of whom have been directly impacted by a workplace injury, illness, or fatality. The national scholarship also recognizes academic achievement, community involvement, and need. Each of the winning recipients will receive a $2,500 scholarship for the upcoming academic year. 

Please join us in extending our heartfelt congratulations to each of the 2022 winners! We’re grateful that with the BCRSP’s support, we’ve been able to help you in pursuing your dreams.
