Canadian Automobile Dealers Association

To recognize ABSC’s vital contribution to the automotive industry, CADA created a scholarship for students enrolled in the Honours Bachelor of Business Administration – Automotive Management program through Georgian College.

The Richard C. Gauthier CADA Scholarship is in honour of Richard C. Gauthier, who was the President and CEO of the CADA from 1996 to 2016.

Gauthier tirelessly supported the ABSC as a guest speaker and lecturer, and devoted countless hours with the students and staff. He worked with the Board and Georgian College to develop the four-year Automotive Business Degree program, as well as the re-branding of the school from the Canadian Automotive Institute to the ABSC, and in forming the Automotive Dealership Management Program.

The award is presented to a student in any year of the Honours Bachelor of Business – Automotive Management program who has demonstrated academic merit (70 per cent or higher) and has had a successful co-op placement in a new car or truck dealership.

Please address your thank you letter to Mr. Richard Gauthier
