BOLT Charitable Foundation

Founded by Tridel, BOLT was launched in 2009 and established as a Charitable Foundation in 2013 to help under-resourced youth 17-29 years old in the GTA access education, training, and employment opportunities in the construction industry. BOLT creates awareness about careers in construction, provides financial support for post-secondary and skilled training programs, and fosters community and industry partnerships to provide the supports necessary for success. Tridel is Canada’s largest condo developer and BOLT’s Principal & Founding Sponsor.

BOLT Financial Awards

BOLT Financial Awards are offered to students pursuing construction-related college or university programs. The awards are provided both directly through the BOLT Charitable Foundation and through our post-secondary and community partners. To date, BOLT has awarded more than 430 scholarships totaling $1.4 million.

We work with our industry partners to identify labour shortages in the skilled trades and other professions to ensure that programs related to those careers can be effectively supported. Once BOLT Financial Award recipients have completed their studies, every effort is made to help connect graduates to employment within the construction industry
