The CIBPA, through its Education Bursary Program, is proud to support students of Italian heritage in all fields of study, as well as non-Italians enrolled in Italian studies curriculums.
The Canadian Italian Business and Professional Association of Toronto (CIBPA) is a non-profit member organization founded in 1952. Since then, we have earned a reputation with Greater Toronto Area communities and government for representing the interests and views of Canadians of Italian heritage.
Our mandate is to promote and cultivate the business, professional, cultural and social interests of our members, and to serve as their local voice, as well as representing the Italian-Canadian community at large. We build and foster forums for the exchange of business and civic ideas and to encourage the growth of close-knit communities. Our organization provides much more than the simple practice of networking or exchanging business cards. We create events and opportunities to build sustainable professional relationships.
And, as our way of giving back to the community and investing in future generations, we provide bursaries and scholarships to students in need through our dedicated education fund.
