Robb Warren Hindson Memorial Bursary

The Hindson family’s relationship with Lake Temagami began with Robb’s Great Grandfather. For many years, he was Chief Fire and Park Ranger for the Temagami District in Northern Ontario at Bear Island. 

Robb’s father, Donald Clarence Hindson was born in 1932, grew up on stories of Temagami and with his wife Christine, took Robb on his first overnight trip, to Temagami when he was five years old. Part of that trip involved a day trip on one of the supply boats that serviced the many youth camps with mail and groceries. Robb never forgot that trip, he was a visitor with his sister Donna and his parents at the Gordon and Doreen Lak cottage in the south arm and visited Bear Island which still had a Hudson Bay Post at the time.

In or about 2001, Robb started a search for an Island in some of the more remote parts of Lake Temagami and purchased an Island in December 2004. The Island had neither electricity or water and he preferred it that way. Robb was neither a fisherman nor hunter rather a conservationist who with his father transplanted over a hundred trees from the mainland to Island. He enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Temagami and exploring its shoreline by canoe and boat.

This bursary has been set up by family and friends in memory of Robb to honour his love, admiration, and commitment to Temagami. Robb was passionate about education and young people. This bursary is to provide opportunities for children who come out of the local schools that will better prepare them for the opportunity to live and work in the Temagami area.

To be eligible to apply for this fund, you must be: 

• Beyond Grade 6 as presently provided in the Ontario school system (in middle school, high school, or post-secondary education such as university or college)
• A resident of the Municipality of Temagami or its surrounding lakes

A bursary may be awarded to assist such student(s) in the advancement of their education. The form of advanced education may be for middle school, high school, university, industrial training for trucks, trailers, and heavy equipment be it driving or maintaining the same, pilot training, surveying, forestry, mining, or such other forms of advanced education as may be determined from time to time by the Foundation.
