IEEE Canadian Foundation $25 for 25 Years

In 2020, IEEE Canada celebrates the 25th anniversary of consolidation of IEEE Region 7 and the Canadian Society of Electrical and Computer Engineering to form IEEE Canada. In recognition, the IEEE Canadian Foundation has initiated a special donation program across Canada. This is about boosting IEEE Canada community support through scholarships, grants and McNaughton Learning Resource Centres. These encourage leadership and community engagement, support new and innovative projects and boost practical engineering skills. All serve to show IEEE support of the next generation of electrical and computer engineers in Canada.
