Our Why

Together we can make a difference

The Garda Family Memorial Scholarships honours the memory of PC Darius Garda, an officer who died by suicide after struggling with mental health issues. Darius was a graduate of the University of Toronto and a firm believer in the power of knowledge and lifelong learning. The Garda Family Memorial Scholarships serve to recognize students who have a strong commitment to learning and a passion for mental health initiatives and advocacy in their community.
