On March 10, 2019, the Boeing 737 MAX-8 of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed near Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, killing 157 people, including 18 Canadians and many others with ties to Canada.

Following extensive consultation with victims’ families, the Canadian Ministry of Transportation has decided to establish a Commemoration Fund to provide financial support to initiatives that honor and preserve the memory of victims with long-term and impactful results related to causes that align with victims’ diverse interests and passions.

To that end, the fund is comprised of two components:

  • Scholarships: expected to be in place for the 2023-2024 study year, the fund will grant scholarships of $10,000 to students from Canada and abroad who have been admitted to a Canadian post-secondary institution.
  • Commemorative Projects: the trust will also fund projects of Canadian not-for-profit organizations that are geared toward contributing to environmental and humanitarian causes and paying lasting tribute to the efforts and interests of victims.
