The Joseph Poitras Métis Bursary Fund


The Joseph Poitras Métis Bursary Fund has been established in recognition of Joseph’s strong advocacy for educational opportunities for Métis youth. This bursary is for a Métis individual who has demonstrated both financial need and a desire to improve their life or employability through additional education or training programs. It is not restricted to high school students and has no upper age limits.

Limited funds are also available for a Métis’ educational application fee.

Preference will be given to applicants with a connection to the Oshawa Durham Region Métis community, but does not preclude consideration of others.
