It is with great pleasure that COPA, in conjunction with the Global Furniture Group, announces the availability of a new scholarship fund for 2024 in honour of one of Canada’s greatest innovators, leaders and teachers — Mr. Saul Feldberg.

Beginning in 2024 and for each of the next five years, worthy students connected to the office products trade will be selected to receive one of five, $1000 awards in honour of Mr. Feldberg, who passed away January 2023 at the age of 87.

A Holocaust survivor, Mr. Feldberg moved to Canada as a teenager with his parents in 1953 and began his office products career by sweeping floors in a small furniture business, evolving to become the founder of the Global Furniture Group and Teknion Corp.

Potential recipients of the awards must be entering their first or second year of studies in an accredited institution of higher learning. Those receiving the awards must also be related to an industry member. The Saul Feldberg Memorial Scholarship will help increase the ability of industry member students to achieve their educational goals.

“This is a way for us to honour one of this industry’s greatest and most successful pioneers and leaders,” noted COPA President, Sam Moncada. “We are very appreciative of time and consideration afforded us by the Feldberg family.”

Further information on this new fund will be available in the coming weeks on the COPA website and in other communication tools, however potential student recipients are encouraged to plan a course of action as soon as possible to begin the qualification process.
