OUR PARTNERSHIP

Great sponsors like Public Service Credit Union enhance the learning experience of its students with considerable financial awards and in-kind donations. Access to education due to financial limitations continues to be a barrier to educational success and your support helps to remove that barrier. For that the college, students and our communities are very thankful.

Public Service Credit Union is recognized yearly at the college’s award ceremonies, and at various speaking engagements and community events. Your contribution provides an incentive for our students to strive to do their best. In today’s competitive labour force every scholarship, award and bursary is vital for students as they seek to make an impression on future employers upon graduation.

At CNA we remain committed to our students by keeping tuition fees low and providing additional supports whenever and wherever possible. The ongoing support provided by Public Service Credit Union to our students has proven invaluable, as it helps reduce debt and also provides students with motivation for hard work and dedication to their programs of study.

Again, we are truly thankful for all you do in enriching the lives of students and giving them a much needed first step in the advancement of their educational goals and future careers.
