About the OTA Education Foundation

We are a charitable institution devoted to the furtherance of education for Ontario post-secondary students. Established in 1958 by visionaries of the Ontario trucking industry, the Foundation was founded with the goal of providing assistance to Ontario students, regardless of their field of study, who have demonstrated their commitment to academic success, community service, and who have or plan to have an affiliation with the trucking industry.

Today, the Foundation, through its Scholarship Program, continues this tradition by assisting children of parents who work in Ontario’s trucking industry.

Endowed Scholarships

The OTA Education Foundation’s scholarship program, which is largely supported by donations from the Ontario trucking and trucking services industries, provides financial assistance to post-secondary students with links to the Ontario trucking industry. With tuition and related fees on a steady upward climb, financial assistance from scholarships is increasingly important for students. I encourage members of the Ontario trucking industry to continue to support this unique scholarship opportunity that has been established for children of parents who make their livelihoods in trucking.
