The CEU is proud to offer an annual bursary program in support of our members and their close relatives. This year the total amount available in the 2021 bursary fund was $7500.

This year, applicants were asked to profile an individual currently involved with a union or a labour organization and the second part of the submission was to write an essay about how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the public’s understanding of who is considered an essential worker.
