Advancing Technological Education and Skills Training


Yves Landry Foundation Academic Award Application and Nomination Form

“To forge an enlightened partnership between industry and

education, train a world-class pool of skilled manufacturing

workers, technicians, technologists and engineers, and secure

technological advantage in a rapidly changing world.”

YVES LANDRY, 1988

G. Yves Landry

1938-1998

In 1938, Yves Landry was born in Thetford Mines, Quebec. From this inauspicious

beginning rose a man of vision who became a giant of the automotive industry.

Educated at Laval, Queens and Columbia Universities, he went on to become

Chairman, President and CEO of Chrysler Canada Ltd. in 1990. He was awarded

many Honourary degrees (Universities of Ottawa, Windsor, McGill, and Laval) and

was invested as an Officer of The Order of Canada on May 14, 1995.

In speeches across Canada, Mr. Landry urged governments and educators to make

our educational system more cost effective and responsive to the demands of our

rapidly evolving economy in order to increase our global competitiveness. He had a

vision of a link forged between industry, education, and government to make a

better society for Canadians. It began to unfold with The Windsor Experiment in

1994.

The Yves Landry Foundation is the embodiment of the vision, principles, and hopes

of the late Yves Landry. Founded in 1998, its goal is to advance technological

education and skills training in order to resolve the skilled labour shortages facing

Canadian industries. The Foundation provides the opportunity for business,

education, and government to, collectively, be part of the solution.

Yves Landry Foundation Academic Award Application and Nomination Form

YVES LANDRY FOUNDATION ACADEMIC AWARDS:

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Technological innovation and excellence at the high school, college and university

levels is recognized at the Foundation’s annual STARS Gala which provides the

platform to promote awareness of the skills shortages that Canadian industry will be

facing over the coming decades.

Programs are publicly honoured for their ingenuity and success in front of their

peers and leaders in Canadian manufacturing. Winners of the Yves Landry

Foundation Academic Awards are presented with an award on stage and receive a

monetary gift to further advance their technological education program.

Technological education provides students with an important base on which Canada

can continue to grow and prosper.

The goals of the Foundation are to ensure that:

• Canadian business and employees achieve and sustain top technical status in

the global arena in which we compete

• Mainstream education provides relevant, up-to-date technical education to the

point where business does not need to provide substantial remedial or

supplemental training, or import skilled workers

• Barriers to life-long education are eliminated

• Choosing a career in technology is as favourably considered by students,

parents, educators and governments as any other career path

• Young people are encouraged to enter apprenticeships, co-operative education

programs and activities that foster better insight about technology and the

inspiring opportunities available.

If you are interested in applying for an Academic Award, or you know an

institution or community group that should be nominated, please use the form

located in the back of this information booklet.

In order to be considered for an award, all projects must have been

operational for a minimum of two (2) years.

college that can best demonstrate success in areas such as placement and success rates, employer

and student satisfaction, employment after the placement and employment in the student’s field of

training.

TECHNICAL RENEWAL

Level: High School

Patron: The Woodbridge Group

The influence of technology on our lives increases each and every day. The fact that the majority of

the human race prefers to learn by doing will never change. High school technology courses and

classic trade shops not only offer students a preferred way to learn, but also lay an important

foundation for skills and advanced technical education. This award will be presented to the high

school that values classic and advanced technology as evidenced by their efforts to improve and

expand technical offerings.

OUTSTANDING YOUTH

APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

Level: High School

This award is for high schools, school boards or community based initiatives that excel in promoting

youth apprenticeship programs and introducing students and their parents to the skills necessary for

the future. High school is where decisions are made about future careers and higher education.

Apprenticeship is a proven way to directly introduce students to the workplace and develop valuable

skills for a future in technology.

PROGRESS TOWARD

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Level: College or University Patron: Shell Canada Limited

This award recognizes the college, university or post-secondary student group that most successfully

incorporates the concept of sustainable development into its programs or projects. Sustainable

development means understanding society’s demand for socially sensitive, economically viable and

environmentally responsible products and manufacturing processes, and acting on that

understanding. It is a case of taking action today with tomorrow in mind. Applicants who believe their

program or project is contributing to creating a truly sustainable society are encouraged to apply.

TECHNICAL CAREER

AWARENESS

Level: High School

This award is for the institution that best promotes to students and parents the career opportunities in

a technical field. A successful technical career awareness initiative typically provides teachers and

guidance counsellors with curriculum based information on growth industries, salaries, the

importance of math, science, technology and languages in the global economy, and represents in a

balanced manner, the advantages of all post-secondary technical training options. Applicants in this

award category should be able to show that the career awareness initiative is guided by a strategy,

and how it is implemented.
