The Orvil L. Davie Memorial Fund was initiated in memory of Orvil L. Davie, the first chair of The Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI). The purpose of the fund is to assist students in completing their education for a career in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industry (HVACR) and to assist in maintaining a higher caliber of HVACR industry personnel.
The fund provides bursaries to individuals who require financial assistance in completing training in an accepted course directly related to the HVACR industry.
Applicants for the bursaries may come from the community or vocational college systems, or through industry sources such as the provincial apprenticeship programs.
Applications are reviewed twice a year with deadlines on March 31st and November 30th annually. The current value of each bursary is $1,000. A response can be expected within four weeks of the deadline.
