Canadian School Counsellor Magazine is proud to announce the establishment of the Outstanding Counsellor Award. This scholarship is in memory of and honours Canadian School Counsellor Magazine’s founder, Trevor H. Shirtliff.

We are inviting guidance counsellors to nominate a student in their school that work’s diligently to improve and strengthen the quality of life for themselves, their peers, and their community. Selections will be based on academic achievement, integrity, leadership, and creativity as evidenced by contributions in the classroom and/or in the broader community.

Nominate a student who is a difference maker
in your school or community!
