*** Due to an overwhelming response to this year’s Recruitment, Retention and Education Fund, some classifications have reached maximum capacity for their funding. While it is great news that CUPE members are successfully using our education funding initiative, it unfortunately means that some applications will be placed on a wait list for future funding.

 Please note however, you will not need to reapply for funding if you receive a letter indicating that you have been placed on the wait list. Your application will be reviewed as funding for the program becomes available.

 Closed Programs:

  • Nursing classifications
  • Medical Device Reprocessing
  • Health Information Management

 We thank you for your understanding.



The Recruitment, Retention and Education Fund was created to microscope (2)support CUPE health care members under the jurisdiction of the PHCC to attend educational or upgrading courses to enhance their employability within health care where CUPE classifications would apply. Priorities have been determined and will be given funding preference for Health Care Aides, Health Care Aides/Unit Clerks, Recreation Facilitator, Health Information Technician, Sterile Processing Technician, and others as deemed by the Committee.

We encourage you to apply!

The next meeting of the selection committee is October 30 & 31, 2018.
