Aboriginal Education Incentives Awards – thank you from Canada Post

The Human Rights and Employment Equity team would like to extend their gratitude to Karen Casselman, Penny Glover, Rosemary Jones (Penny’s sister), Bruce Fletcher, John MacKinnon, Peter Speak and Trish Edwards,  for taking part in the initial review process of this year’s Aboriginal Education Incentive Award essay submissions. Thanks to your efforts and dedication to the task at hand, the review was a wonderful success. On behalf of all award applicants, as well, thank you for your part in recognizing and applauding those who have overcome hardship in the pursuit of higher learning!

—————-original message———————–

Are you interested in helping with the initial review process for Canada Post’s 2013 Aboriginal Education Incentives Awards with fellow By-Town members?

Every year, Canada Post celebrates the pursuit of learning among Aboriginal people by granting the Canada Post Aboriginal Education Incentive Awards. The awards applaud the efforts of Aboriginal people who have overcome adversity in order to return to school and further their education.

For 2013, we’ve received approximately 130 applications from which we’ll be selecting 24 of the best entries as this year’s winning submissions.

On October 8th, a group of volunteers will meet at Canada Post’s head office to read through the applicants’ essays and score them based on specific criteria.

If you’d like to help review the entries, please register as soon as possible with Canada Post’s Sandy Sheremeta at 613-734-3120 or sandy.sheremeta@canadapost.ca .

We hope you’ll join us for this rewarding experience. A few hours of your time would be greatly appreciated, and lunch will be served!


Chaque année, Postes Canada décerne des Prix d’encouragement aux études à l’intention des Autochtones pour souligner la poursuite de leurs études. Ces prix récompensent les efforts des Autochtones qui ont surmonté leurs difficultés en vue de reprendre leurs études.

Pour 2013, nous avons reçu environ 130 demandes, parmi lesquelles nous choisirons les 24 meilleurs candidats qui se verront décerner un prix.

Le 8 octobre, un groupe de bénévoles se réunira au siège social de Postes Canada pour lire les essais des candidats afin de les marquer selon des critères précis. Si vous aimeriez nous aider à passer en revue les candidatures, veuillez communiquer avec Sandy Sheremeta au 613 734-3120 ou à l’adresse sandy.sheremeta@postescanada.ca.

Nous espérons que vous vous joindrez à nous pour cette expérience enrichissante. Nous vous saurions gré de bien vouloir nous accorder quelques heures de votre temps, et un repas vous sera servi!
