Founded in 1999, the CPAC Foundation (formerly Education Foundation of CPAC) is a registered charity that raises funds in support of CPAC’s work within the immigrant community and also the Foundation’s own education related initiatives.
The Foundation has supported and continues to support CPAC in carrying out its mission of helping internationally trained professionals and tradespeople to obtain licenses, find jobs, advance their careers, develop leadership skills and integrate into the Canadian society.
For its own initiatives, the Foundation organizes activities that provide educational information to parents and students. It also provides scholarships and bursaries to secondary and post-secondary students who have demonstrated a social responsibility as well as a determination to pursue academic excellence.
Since 2000, the CPAC Foundation has given out 206 scholarships and bursaries with a total value of $246,000. It has also built two schools in poverty and disaster stricken areas in China.
