Supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs
The first Pierre Péladeau Bursaries, named in memory of our founder, a man known for his vision, determination and entrepreneurial drive who inspired generations of Quebecers, were handed out in 1999.
The four Pierre-Péladeau Bursaries, worth $100,000, $50,000, $35,000 and $15,000, are handed out to stimulate business startups in Québec. All Québec university students are eligible. The financial support helps young entrepreneurs start up a business, carry out their business plan, and develop their products and markets, regardless of their field of study or the nature of their venture.
The winners were announced at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Quebecor in May 2019.
