For those wanting to attend a conference or continue on with their education, there are many opportunities for funding.

  • Employer Sponsored Educational Development-Article 2407(c)
    A maximum of $200 per fiscal year can be obtained to attend workshops or other appropriate courses relevant to nursing practice and covers tuition, registration & course materials if needed. Applications for this fund can be found online through Interlinks. Your manager must sign this form in order for you to access the funds. Once the form is completed it can be mailed to the address on the bottom of the form along with the necessary supporting documentation. ALL members are required to access this fund first. As these monies do not get forwarded to the following year, they are then absorbed by the employer & lost to our members.
  • WRHA Continuing Education Fund
    Applications can be obtained from your PCTM. This fund covers registration & other expenses related to attending an educational function to a maximum of $500 per fiscal year. Extra monies are also available for nurses taking an unpaid educational leave of absence, up to 2 days per year. (This information is subject to changes, please contact the WRHA at coned@matc.ca for further information)
