It is imperative that you contact C&E Branch Adjutant by Mid-July either by e-mail (see above) or phone (613.541.5010 x 8371 or CSN 271.8371) if there is any doubt that your application will arrive by the deadline. The Branch Office shall release confirmed dates – on CMCEN – regarding the submission due date for each year.


Note: Notification of the open competition for each academic year shall be made known on CMCEN and – if required – via DWAN Distribution List.  Elected recipients will be contacted directly (through their guardian / parent) and issued a cheque by the Branch Office.  Photos and details shall be collected for the purpose of promoting the programme and recognizing each winning applicant.

Note: The Branch Office endeavors to award each grant before the commencement of the academic year.  This is not always possible due to time / availability of board members, logistical considerations, and unforeseen delays in arranging / delivering each cheque.
