Ian has been a member of Scouting since the age of 5, beginning in Beavers.  When Ian moved up to Venturers, he looked for something different than a traditional Venturer Company, and joined a MedVent (Medical Venturers) Company. His experiences with the MedVent Company lead to an interest in paramedicine as an educational and career path.  Ian has completed his first-year of Paramedicine, a joint program offered by University of Toronto and Centennial College.  In addition to standard tuition fees and costs associated with post-secondary education, Ian is required to purchase equipment related to paramedicine such as a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, etc., which the bursary award will help with.
