The purpose of the WTS Canadian Education Foundation is to grant scholarships to students enrolled in a post secondary program in the transportation field.
WTS is an international organization dedicated to building the future of transportation through the global advancement of women.
The roots of the WTS Canadian Education Foundation go back to the year 2003, with the establishment of the first international chapter of WTS on Canada’s west coast.
When it was determined the WTS International scholarship program did not support study at Canadian institutions, the Canadian chapter initiated the process to establish a Canadian scholarship awards program. The WTS Strait of Georgia Education Foundation was incorporated on November 5, 2007. One year later the new Education Foundation was approved as a registered Canadian charity.
In 2015, the decision was made to transition to a national foundation. On February 22, 2016, the name was officially changed to WTS Canadian Education Foundation.
