The BCFTOA Bursary was first awarded in 2003 and was renamed the Dean Larivee Memorial Bursary in honour of Dean’s dedication and many contributions to the BCFTOA, fire service training and the fire service in general.
"ABBOTSFORD, BC July 14th, 2006 – Flags are flying at half-mast at Abbotsford fire halls after a local firefighter lost his battle with a disease linked to his on-the-job service. Capt. Dean Larivee passed away earlier this week, nearly nine months after he was diagnosed with leukemia. He is believed to be the first person to be covered under recent legislation that presumes firefighters diagnosed with certain types of cancer contracted the disease as a result of fighting flames."
Awarding of the bursary is based on:
• Academic standing – GPA
