“As our region continues to experience challenging labour shortages, especially in skilled trades, it has never been more evident that continuous education plays a vital role in our future prosperity – both as individuals and as a community.  That is why the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley is proud to support tomorrow’s innovators and leaders through the creation of our Trades Scholarship.” – Mayor Burrow
