The Phyllis Pitre Bursary is funded and administered through the Career Development Association of PEI (CDA of PEI). The bursary awards PEI adult learners who are working towards completing a post-secondary certificate, diploma, or degree.
In 2011, at the age of 48, Phyllis Pitre, former Chair of CDA of PEI, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. She lived in Charlottetown and was formerly of Tignish Shore. She valued lifelong learning and made a tremendous impact on people in her personal life and those she worked with to encourage and support them as they made life decisions and planned their career.
