Help out EWB Canada

Just got this in the mail from my local EWB Canada chapter. Even if it's not something any of you may be interested in, if you know any students it might be useful to, please feel free to pass it on. (Sorry 'bout the crappy formatting, but I only minimally modified the Word generated HTML because I didn't feel like breaking my head.)
