TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Seven children of Canadian military personnel who have died while on duty serving their country will open the markets at the Toronto Stock Exchange on Friday, September 18, 2009.

Blake Goldring, Chairman of Canada Company and Chairman and CEO of AGF Management Limited, along with Gerry McCaughey, President and CEO, CIBC, will present the scholarships at the second annual Canada Company Scholarship Fund Awards.
Canada Company, created in 2006, brings community leaders from across Canada together to support Canadian soldiers and their families. The Canada Company Scholarship Fund was created in 2008 to supplement benefits available to the children who have had a parent die while on duty. Awarded annually, the scholarships provide $4,000 per year for up to four years for children who qualify. These scholarships help to offset tuition fees and other living expenses required to complete a post-secondary education.
