The Directors' Forum established the Young Credit Union Directors' Bursary to assist Board Directors under 40 with their professional development and governance training. 

The annual conference is a wonderful opportunity for young directors to network and engage with system leaders from across Ontario and develop potential mentorship opportunities. 

The Young Directors' Bursary covers the cost of the conference registration. All conference sessions, meals served during the conference and activities are included. It does not cover the cost of transportation to and from the conference venue, accommodations, or the evening meals (which are not part of the conference).


Applicants will be considered in order of applications received, and must fulfil the following criteria in order to be considered:

  • Aged 39 and under at time of application and during the 2021 conference 
  • A current board member of an Ontario credit union or caisse populaire (or an intern director)
  • Demonstrate a commitment to both personal development and that of their credit union or caisse populaire
  • Not have previously received a bursary from the DF in the past

Stay tuned for information on the 2022 bursary.
