This standing annual scholarship of $1000 was created in 2019 in honour of Amy Stiles, her legacy as a union activist, and the work that she did on behalf of her local, her division and her union.

Amy was a nursing faculty member at Conestoga, where she worked as the coordinator for the Personal Support Worker program at Riverside Glen in Guelph, and where she conducted a “Living Classroom” with on-site learning for her students.

In 2017, while returning home from a rally at Queen’s Park in support of striking college faculty, Amy was tragically killed in a car accident.
