Yvon Charest Bursaries

Two bursaries of $5,000 for children of iA Financial Group employees

We’re back with the 3rd edition of the Yvon Charest Bursaries, in honour of our former president and CEO, who helped build the major, forward-looking company that iA Financial Group has become.


  • February 2 to March 2, 2021

    Submission period

  • March 3 to 18, 2021

    The committee, made up of employees from Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Quebec City, will choose 10 submissions (5 per category) from those received. Committee members will not see the employee’s name, the child’s name or where they’re from, to guarantee transparency.

  • March 18 to 30, 2021

    Employees will be asked to vote on the submissions that inspire them the most (their 1st choice and 2nd choice for each category).

  • April 6, 2021
