Toyota Canada Foundation has announced a $150,000 investment in STEM education for youth.

The investment will go towards its “Let’s Talk Science” program that supports national science, technology, engineering and math education outreach for youth across Canada.

"In a rapidly changing, complex world it is critical that we ensure all children and youth remain curious, ask questions and have the skills required to participate, thrive and lead," says Bonnie Schmidt, president, Let's Talk Science. "Toyota recognizes that Let's Talk Science experiences support talent development required for Canada's future success."

Toyota says its investment will help ensure Canadian youth continue to have access to free, hands-on STEM-based programming offered through Let's Talk Science in both English and French. Engaging more young people from segments of the population that are currently underrepresented in STEM, including girls, Indigenous youth, rural and remote youth, and youth with socioeconomic challenges, is a significant priority for Toyota Canada Foundation.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada also announced a $50,000 investment to grow the Let's Talk Science Outreach program in in Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, Woodstock, and London, Ontario, for a combined total investment of $200,000 from Toyota in Canada.Since 1993, Let's Talk Science has engaged over 8.5 million youth and educators in more than 2,000 communities within every province and territory across Canada.
