ATU Local 113 believes strongly in the importance of education. That’s why we have one of the most generous scholarship programs of any local in Canada. Every year, we award dozens of scholarships to the children of our members. There are four types of scholarships available:

The Heintzman-Baker Memorial Scholarship
In remembrance of retired International President Ronald J. Heintzman and retired International Executive Vice President Robert Baker, Sr. (whom passed away in April and May 2018, respectively), recipients of this scholarship are encouraged to fight injustices everywhere and gain interest in union and community organizing. Applications are open to members in good standing, as well as to their children (natural or legally adopted), stepchildren and grandchildren planning to enter college, technical or vocational post-secondary school for the first time during the 2019-2020 school year. Five scholarships each in the amount of $8,000 will be awarded, while a sixth $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to a technical or vocational school applicant.

Applications must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2019 and sent by first class mail to:

The Peter Bodnick Scholarship
A former lifetime member of Local 113, the late Peter Bodnick, set aside funds in his will to provide an annual scholarship of $1,000 to a Local 113 member’s child entering a Technical/Post Secondary Registered Trades Course leading to a Skilled Trades Licence. Applicants are required to submit a written essay between 500-750 words on the subject of “Organized Labour’s Contribution to the Welfare of the People of Canada.”

While the scholarship is closed for the year, please find the 2018 forms below.

The John Lorimer Memorial Scholarship
Named after a Local 113 President/Business Agent in the 1940’s, this scholarship is available to ATU 113 members’ children who are graduating from Grade 12 and advancing to a university degree program or who are already enrolled in a university degree program and have not previously received a scholarship from Local 113. There are up to 38 $1,500 scholarships awarded annually. Recipients are based on applicants’ Grade 12 marks.

The Tommy Douglas Memorial Scholarship
Tommy Douglas is an example of an exceptional Canadian – one whose commitment to fairness and the public good we try to live and work by every day. He was an activist and politician who advanced the labour movement, advocated for the Canada Pension Plan and introduced the continent’s first single-payer, universal health care program. This scholarship is open to members in good standing, as well as to their children (natural or legally adopted), stepchildren and grandchildren planning to enter college, technical or vocational post-secondary school for the first time.
