SAVE THE DATE — 2018 Clifford Pilkey Memorial Golf Fundraiser
Please join us Thursday, June 21, 2018 at Deer Creek Golf Club in Ajax, Ontario for the annual Clifford Pilkey Memorial Golf Fundraiser.
For 29 years, this tournament has benefited from the backing of unions, businesses and generous individuals who’ve participated by golfing, sponsoring or making a donation.
Proceeds from the 2018 golf fundraiser will again support the Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) Annual Student Scholarship Contest. The competition is designed to help raise awareness among young and new workers of key occupational health and safety rights, responsibilities and principles.
Like many WHSC initiatives, the contest also aims to help dispel the myth that careless worker behaviours cause traumatic fatalities and injuries, or the significant incidence of occupational disease. At the root of this unacceptable suffering are uncontrolled workplace hazards. The suffering stops when employers take full responsibility for its prevention, including the provision of effective training so workers are better prepared to participate in hazard prevention programs in a meaningful way. Students who best demonstrate this understanding in their submissions are ultimately awarded much-needed funds for their post-secondary education.

Event proceeds are also shared with the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA); thereby supporting their work to help ensure the protection of our civil liberties, human rights and democratic freedoms.
WHSC is proud to facilitate this fundraising event and help carry on two causes near and dear to the tournament’s namesake, Clifford Pilkey.
Further details about registration and sponsorship opportunities will be forwarded by the end of March.
Further details about the newly revamped 2018 WHSC Annual Student Scholarship Contest will also be communicated soon through various WHSC media channels.
