Our inclusive culture includes you


Deloitte Canada’s Bloom Scholarship Programs

We are committed to building an inclusive culture in everything we do and helping to develop future leaders in Canada. Our annual Bloom Scholarship Program focuses on addressing systemic barriers and inequities. Through this program, we aim to support and empower students from equity-deserving groups, while providing them with opportunities to explore their potential and get a head start on a thriving career in an award-winning culture, recognized for fostering inclusion.

Scholarship for Students with Disabilities

Creating an accessible and inclusive environment for people with disabilities is deeply important to us. We provide support and accommodations to our people based on their unique needs, which could include adaptive technology, flexibility of working hours, a modified work-from-home configuration, and other resources.

We aim to build a better future for all by not only accelerating access to knowledge but also by removing barriers that prevent people from accessing opportunities. That’s why our AccessAbility Action Plan is so important: it reaffirms our commitment to creating a safe, welcoming, and accessible environment at Deloitte for people with disabilities—through action.

Applications are open to students from across Canada who identify as members of the people with disabilities community, with applications closing on Friday, January 19, 2024. Selected students will be awarded a one-time $5,000 scholarship and the opportunity to complete a paid work term at one of our Canadian offices within the year.

  • Are eligible to work in Canada

The artist's biography

The artwork featured on this page was created by Patrick Hardy. Born in Montreal, Quebec, he travelled to Victoria, British Columbia, for a summer to gain artistry experience. While there, he was influenced by art produced by the Lkwungen artists which has since been featured in all his compositions. He now lives in Moncton, New Brunswick, with his wife and their son, Sam.

In 2009, Sam was diagnosed as being on the spectrum of autism, which had a huge impact on their lives. In 2012, Patrick committed to raising awareness of autism by selling his art and donating part of the proceeds to Autism Canada. He raised more than $3,000 in the first year.

In 2014, Patrick and Sam created and sold 47 pieces of art. With this newfound success, they built their own online store: www.itsforsam.com

In 2016, Patrick wrote a book series based on his son’s life, with the intention of introducing autism to other children. To date, he has written and illustrated 13 books in French and 11 in English, which can be found here: www.myfriendsam.ca
