Johnson Inc. 2016 Scholarship Program Opens April 1st, 2016

Building on our History of Supporting Customers and Communities


For many Canadian students, the jump from high school to post-secondary education is a thrilling transition into adulthood, but one that comes with new financial responsibilities.

At Johnson, we understand the challenges faced by students during their pursuit of higher education, and we are proud to offer scholarships to help them achieve their dreams. Since 1998, Johnson has awarded over 1500 scholarships valued at more than $1 million to support young Canadians coast to coast in pursuing their post-secondary education.

This year, we are pleased to offer 50 scholarships worth $1000 each to students who have an auto or home policy through Johnson (or their parent/guardian or grandparent), or have a parent or grandparent who is a member/employee of a Johnson sponsor/client group, or who are children and grandchildren of Johnson employees.

Students must have completed high school in 2016 and must be beginning post-secondary education this fall.

Applications for the Scholarship Program will be open starting April 1st, 2016. Completed application forms must be submitted by August 31st, 2016 and must contain an official school transcript of final year credits.


For more information, or to apply for a Johnson Inc. scholarship, please call or visit 1.866.544.2673 |

Veterans Affairs Canada
News Release
Reference #N14117E
New Appointments to the Veterans Review and Appeal Board Announced
October 16, 2014 – Ottawa – Veterans Affairs Canada
The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs, today announced that Wilfred Jephson and Mary Tobin Oates will join the Veterans Review and Appeal Board, which provides Veterans, Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) members, and their families, with an independent avenue of appeal for disability benefit decisions made by Veterans Affairs Canada. 
Wilfred Jephson of Ottawa, Ontario, has a strong background in policing and recently retired from the RCMP after 25 years as an investigator and general duty officer. During his career, he spent six years as a staff relations representative, advocating for the well-being of serving members and the development of the RCMP. Mr. Jephson is fluently bilingual and holds a Master of Arts in Conflict Analysis and Management from Royal Roads University. 
Mary Tobin Oates of Ottawa, Ontario, has worked as a legal advisor for more than a decade in various federal departments including the RCMP, Finance Canada, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, and Justice Canada. Ms. Tobin Oates previously worked as a lawyer for Canada’s income security programs, where she gained experience with administrative tribunals and the hearing process.
Quick Facts 
·         Mr. Jephson is appointed for a three-year term.
·         Ms. Tobin Oates is appointed for a two-year term.
·         Appointments to the Veterans Review and Appeal Board are made by the Governor in Council through the Board’s merit-based selection process.
·         The Veterans Review and Appeal Board is an independent body created in 1995 that conducts hearings across Canada to provide Veterans with the opportunity to bring forward new evidence, give oral testimony, and have supporting arguments presented on their behalf. 
·         The merit-based selection process for new Board members prefers candidates with military, medical, policing or legal backgrounds in recognition of the people served by the appeal process and the nature of the work.
·         The last 11 members appointed to the Board have military, medical, policing or legal backgrounds. More than three-quarters of the Board’s current members have these backgrounds (18 of 23). 
·         Mr. Jephson is the third RCMP Veteran to be appointed to the Board. All three were appointed since 2011. 


“I welcome today’s appointees to the Board and thank them for their dedication to Canadian Veterans. Both have the requisite knowledge and experience to ensure that this open and non-adversarial process continues to contribute to fairness in the disability benefits system for Veterans and their families.” 

The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs 
“On behalf of our President Dave Leblanc and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Veterans’ Association, I want to express my sincere delight at these appointments. We are very pleased that the RCMP continues to be so well represented on the Veterans Review and Appeal Board.”
Cal Small, Former President of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Veterans’ Association
