The Canadian Credit Institute Education Foundation (CCIEF) is a federally registered Canadian charity established over 40 years ago, in 1967. Its mandate is furthering credit education. In the past CCIEF contributed financial awards to the tune of over $250,000! As we move into a new era of educational support the CCIEF is very excited to further support credit education making sure it is accessible to individuals across Canada with program content that is current, professional and valuable.
2008 was a landmark year for the CCIEF as a number of exciting new educational initiatives were launched. The newly developed Scholarship program was rolled out and two very grateful and excited scholarship recipients were able to continue their studies through the CIC program. CCIEF also sponsored a rewrite, modernization and translation of the Credit Basics program in partnership with the Credit Institute.
The Scholarship Committee
The scholarship committee consists of four members, each holding a Credit Institute designation. Each of individuals on the scholarship committee is an active Credit Institute member.
