The COVID-19 pandemic has halted our face to face education for the time being. The PSAC B.C. Education Program wanted to ensure that members who are seeking non-PSAC educational opportunities have access to some support in the coming months. One way to do this is by expanding our non-PSAC education course subsidies. PSAC B.C. Education program has decided to offer an additional four (4) x $250.00 subsidies.
Between June and August, PSAC B.C. members can apply for a subsidy to the maximum amount of $250.00 to help support their participation in non-PSAC education courses. Generally, these educational opportunities may include online courses offered by District Labour Councils, Federations of Labour, Canadian Labour Congress, community organizations or other progressive and/or labour organizations within Canada.
Successful applicants will be notified by the Regional Education Officer and the approved subsidy will be issued after attending the course and confirmation of attendance has been received. If you have questions, please contact the PSAC BC Regional Education Officer, Deanna Kimball at KimballD@psac-afpc.com.
