This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Emmy Duff Scholarship Foundation


The Emmy Duff Scholarship Foundation honours a young woman who lived her life with courage, compassion and above all, hope. Throughout her journey, Emmy’s remarkable spirit inspired those around her. With her never failing strength and positive outlook, she embraced life at every turn, including her time away from home as a university student.

She was a thoughtful and caring friend to all who knew her and was a fundraising advocate, sharing her story with those causes that were important to her, including childhood cancer organizations, as a Sick Kids Ambassador, for Canadian Blood Services, L.U.C.K. at Laurier and Look Good Feel Better.

In keeping with Em’s spirit of giving, the Emmy Duff Scholarship Foundation is dedicated to providing scholarships for students who are cancer survivors attending college or university and who have demonstrated an ongoing volunteer commitment to causes that are important to them.
