J. Russell St. Eloi

(January 31st, 1924 - January 2nd, 2007)

The J. Russell St. Eloi UA Scholarship Fund Society was established to keep alive the vision Mr Russell St. Eloi had, which was equal rights for all and affirmative action – a vision he fought for all his life. Through his dedication of over 50 years Mr St. Eloi helped further his vision and made the UA in Canada what it is today. Mr St. Eloi’s death in 2005 left us with the determination to start a scholarship fund which would contribute to the advancement of trades opportunities to those who would not normally be able to afford it. This opportunity will be offered to all Canadians in the hope of spreading Russell St. Eloi’s dream that all Canadians may enjoy access to meaningful employment, fair treatment and the ability to fulfill a career in the piping trades.
