Created in 2006, Canada Company brings business leaders together from across Canada to support Canadian soldiers and their families. The Canada Company Scholarship Fund (CCSF) was created in 2007 to supplement benefits available to children who have had a parent perish while on duty.

These scholarships help to offset tuition fees and other living expenses required to complete a post-secondary education.
