Legacy Foundation

The Legacy Foundation is committed to supporting the next generation of professionals. The foundation’s sole purpose is to support the education of deserving young people across Canada.

The mission of the Legacy Foundation is to promote the intertwined values of professionalism and service, both to community and to country. This mission is accomplished by awarding scholarships for post-secondary education.

The pursuit of knowledge is a cornerstone value for PIPSC. We have always understood the importance of education to our members and to Canadian society.

Through the generous donations of our PIPSC community and corporate sponsors, the foundation has generated almost a million dollars in scholarships for young Canadians.

We are proud to continue offering this opportunity with our community partner, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC). Each year, the Legacy Foundation awards scholarships to candidates identified by the BGCC who may not otherwise have the means to fulfill their potential.


Our scholarship program began in 1999 with an endowment from PIPSC members to form a scholarship fund. Since then, corporate sponsors and the PIPSC community have contributed funding for additional scholarships.

The Legacy Foundation offers scholarships to children and grandchildren of regular or retired PIPSC members. We also sponsor scholarships through the BGCC. Students must be entering their first year of post-secondary education in a full-time program.
