An 18-year-old Junior Canadian Ranger from Fort Severn is one of five Junior Rangers from across the Canadian North who has won a Canada Company bursary to assist in their education.

Ian Kakekaspan received a plaque and a cheque for $1,000 at a ceremony at Lac Seul First Nation. He is a grade 12 student at Sioux North High School in nearby Sioux Lookout. He is attending school in Sioux Lookout because Fort Severn, a small Cree First Nation on Hudson Bay and Ontario’s most northerly community, has no high school.

He plans to use the money to help him achieve his ambition to become a commercial pilot after graduating.

The Junior Canadian Rangers is a Canadian Army youth program for boys and girls aged 12 to 18 in remote and isolated communities across the Canadian North.

The plaque and cheque were presented to Ian by Kerry Vance, a director of Canada Company, a charity that provides a range of supports for the military. Ms. Vance’s husband is General Jonathan Vance, chief of the defence staff.
