Rising Stars of the Canadian Pet Industry

To PIJAC Canada, supporting the Canadian pet industry is more than supporting the businesses alone.  It is about engaging and assisting future members to achieve and succeed in their professional aspirations.

Across the country, students enter into post-secondary education with the pet industry as their goal. As a trade association, our vision includes the advancement and development of a vibrant pet industry. We support this vision by hosting an annual scholarship competition, with two 1000$ prizes to be awarded.  These scholarships are made available to PIJAC Canada members, their staff and family members and is held every Spring.

If you want to know more on our Scholarship opportunities, contact programs@pijaccanada.com.  Here is what a past successful candidate had to say about winning a $1000 PIJAC Canada Scholarship.

“My lifelong dream of attending University of Manitoba and studying direct sciences to become a Veterinarian is moving forward, thanks to educational scholarships like yours. The $1000 award gives me an opportunity to earn skills that will serve the Veterinary community following graduation. Thank you very much for your generosity: Without scholarship patrons willing to assist young people, students such as myself would be unable to pursue advanced degrees.

My passion for animal medicine is matched only by my love for animals, so my decision to specialize in Veterinarian Medicine comes from the heart.

Once again, thank you for the vote of confidence and the PIJAC Canada scholarship.  I am committed to my education and to animal welfare, and one step closer to becoming a doctor, thanks to you.”
