About the Program

TransCore Link Logistics’ LinkScholar Program was introduced in March 2014 and was designed for students with a connection to the Canadian transportation industry. The Program’s purpose is to identify high potential young people deserving of an opportunity to fully achieve their potential by helping them meet tuition costs. The Program offers two graduating high school students who demonstrate strong academic achievement and well-roundedness a $2,500 scholarship each. 

Giving Back to Children Charities

Since 1998, TransCore Link Logistics is committed to giving back to the community by supporting children’s charities in every province of Canada. To date, we have donated over $250,000 to more than 120 charitable organizations as a result of net proceeds raised from our annual charity golf tournaments.

In addition to our annual donations, each year TransCore selects a charity of choice who exhibits core values similar to our own to receive a bulk of the funds. Our Charity of Choice recipient for 2017 is SickKids Foundation.

Every donation makes a real difference in the life of a child and we truly appreciate the generosity and support from our valued customers. Your participation is vital to our success in enriching children’s lives and offering them hope.
