and practice of bilingualism in the Canadian communications and
public relations profession. Inspired by the career of Armand Torchia,

Communications with his son Jean-Claude, the Scholarship adheres
to the values espoused by Torchia Communications in providing quality
services in both of Canada's official languages.
