Toronto Brigantine’s Bursary fund grows

In memory of Stephen Lane, a former TBI Board Member, the law firm Sim &  McBurney and Sim Lowman Ashton & McKay have made a major contribution to Toronto Brigantine’s Inc Bursary Fund. Their contribution, in Stephen’s name, will allow two teenagers  to participate in the Summer Program every year. The Summer Program participants will be able to continue with Toronto Brigantine program in the Winter Program and continue toward officer roles with Toronto Brigantine.

Each year 20 to 25% of the trainees that participate in our Summer Program, participate thanks to financial support through our bursary fund.  We look forward to continuing to grow the fund to allow youth that might not otherwise be able to afford it the opportunity to participate in our tall ship based youth sail training program.

Toronto Brigantine program offers teenagers – boys and girls – the opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork skills, build self confidence and experience the joys and challenge of working and sailing aboard a tall ship.  

We look forward to meeting the two teenagers that are selected for the Sim & McBurney bursary – along with all the other almost 200 teenagers that will be sailing with us next summer!   In the meantime, the Winter Program has begun with almost 50 teenagers enrolled – our future TBI officers!
