Many students will benefit from this donation and we’re tremendously grateful that TD has chosen to support our Indigenous students as they pursue their post-secondary education.”


“TD is proud of its long history supporting Indigenous people and strives to build lasting success within the communities where we operate. Strong Indigenous communities make a strong Canada. That’s why TD supports the education of Indigenous students and the conditions for them to succeed with confidence. Through The Ready Commitment, our new corporate citizenship platform, we help improve financial security and open doors to a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow for all,” said Andrea Barrack, Vice President, Global Corporate Citizenship, TD Bank Group.


This bursary will be available to students beginning in the 2018-19 academic year. It is expected that this donation will support up to 50 students over a two to five year period.
