$ 500 Training Grant
•  Posted on  January 16, 2021  

Every year, CMG’s parent union, CWA Canada, budgets money for education and mobilization so that union members can be provided with opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills, or to become more involved in the union.

In 2020, due to COVID-19, Locals such as CMG have not been able to provide in-person education, training or events.

To remedy this, the budget will be used to provide 50 members with up to $500 each to spend on an education or training course (university, community college, online, or the like).

Since only 50 grants are available, they will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis. All requests must be submitted by March 31, 2021.

To apply for the grant, email CWA Canada Office Co-ordinator, Marj Botsford.

Please provide your name, personal email address, a contact number, the name or number of your Local, the name of the course and institution, and a one-line description of the course.

Once approved, you can register for your course and you will just need to send in proof of payment to be reimbursed to a maximum of $500.
