Applications are now Being Accepted for the Harvey Buchan Educational Bursary
Posted: Apr 20, 2021

The Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Harvey Buchan Educational Bursary.

Please circulate this notice within your organization so all those who are eligible to apply have the opportunity to do so.

Background
 
The Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association introduced the Harvey Buchan Educational Bursary Program in 1993, following the passing of Harvey Buchan.
 
Mr. Buchan was a Journeyman Carpenter by trade who purchased Samson Construction Co. in 1972. He was a dedicated supporter of the Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association. He filled numerous roles for the Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association over the years and was also committed to the Provincial Industry. He served as Director of the Construction Safety Association of Ontario, the Council of Ontario Construction Associations and Ontario General Contractors Association.
 
The Bursary strives to recognize qualities of volunteerism, peer support, commitment to fellow man, and dedication - all qualities that made Harvey a respected leader in this industry.
 
Bursary Details
 
The bursary amount will be a minimum of $1,000 and will be presented to the successful recipient(s) at the Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association’s Annual Golf Tournament.  The Tournament is scheduled to be held on Thursday, August 5, 2021.  We expect that the recipient(s) will make every effort to attend the presentation ceremony, as long as it’s permissible under COVID related restrictions.
