At CASE, we are devoted to making healthcare more accessible to English-speakers living outside of the province’s larger urban centres. That’s why we’re helping bilingual students in the regions pursue career goals in the health and social services sector in their hometowns.

As a community network participant in the Dialogue McGill Community Leader Bursary in Health and Social Services program, CASE has awarded 10 scholarships totalling $40,000 since beginning the partnership in 2017. The funding sponsors bilingual students studying in the public health and social services fields, including nursing, speech therapy, and psychoeducation.

Our recipients have come from all over the Mauricie-Centre-du-Québec territory, including La Tuque, Shawinigan, Trois-Rivières, Drummondville, South Durham, and Victoriaville. While the majority of the awardees have been studying at the cégep level, one prize has gone to a university student.
