Hydro One is actively engaged in encouraging and investing in First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students interested in careers within the electricity sector. In 2011, Hydro One launched an annual educational scholarship that supports First Nations, Métis and Inuit students enrolled in industry related programs at a recognized college or university.
In 2014, the scholarship was named in recognition of the Honourable Justice Leonard S. (Tony) Mandamin, one of the first Electrical Engineering graduates in Ontario of First Nations ancestry. The Honourable Justice Leonard S. (Tony) Mandamin, an Anishnawbe, was born in 1944 and is a member of the Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve on Manitoulin Island. His legal career began in Alberta in 1983, following his call to the bar. In 2007, he was appointed as a Judge of the Federal Court and ex-officio member of the Federal Court of Appeal, and a Judge of the Court Marital Appeal Court of Canada.
The One Awards acknowledge and share the ingenuity of our employees and the potential of aspiring professionals to the joint benefit of Hydro One and the people of Ontario.
Hydro One is looking for outstanding First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students who demonstrate the traits that make them the innovative, diverse organization that they are.
Each year, up to 15 scholarships are available, which includes both a financial award in the amount of $5,000 and an opportunity to complete a paid developmental work term at Hydro One. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is December 31 of each year.
