Corporate Support


Organizations and private citizens have chosen to support the CRTP program in many ways. Many have chosen the host a work experience student and others have offered support other valued ways.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors at this time for helping to make CRTP the program that it is!

A special thanks goes to the following;

Esmail & Safana Bharwani Charitable Foundation Award

This award is established by Esmail and Safana Bharwani to celebrate a mother's hard work and community engagement, while pursuing their programs at Bow Valley College.

Jacqueline and Desmond Lai Award

The Lai Family has donated funds to CRTP to support the incremental costs associated with travelling to a work experience placement outside of Calgary. 

Classroom Volunteers

We welcome the participation of community leaders and volunteers in the program.

  • volunteering in the classroom to share your knowledge and experiences with the class
  • presenting to the group on workplace issues
  • leading small group discussions on various job finding topics
