The Apprenticeship Bursary Fund
This fund has been established in order to assist apprenticing students with their day-to-day costs so that they can focus on learning. The fund was set up by family and friends in memory of the late Robert Fletcher. Bob worked as an electrician for over fifty years in the Orillia and Muskoka area. A hard-working, honest, and reliable man, Bob was an excellent and tough teacher to those whom he mentored and taught. Many of his apprentices have described him as a positive influence, instilling in them a remarkable work ethic and a strong commitment to the job.
