Legal Studies

The Notary Foundation and B.C. Notaries Scholarship
The Notary Foundation of BC was established 1985 and is the recipient of the interest paid by BC credit unions, Canadian chartered banks and trust companies when clients' funds are held in trust by a BC Notary Public. The Notary Foundation receives and distributes these funds earned each year in accordance with the goals and objectives set by the Board of Governors.  One way they use the funds is to provide scholarships and bursaries to students in colleges and universities taking certain law-related courses. In 2006, The Notary Foundation established The Notary Foundation and BC Notaries Scholarship at Douglas College to recognize and reward students enrolled in the Legal Studies Diploma program. In 2016, the criteria was expanded to include students enrolled in Criminology programs.
