If you have lost your job or taken a package because of downsizing, you are eligible for $500 from the Canadian Media Guild’s Canadian (CMG) parent union, CWA|SCA Canada, toward any training or education course.
CWA/SCA Canada developed the grant program in response to widespread job cuts in the media industry. The union will provide $500 to any eligible CMG member who provides CWA/SCA Canada proof of payment for a skills training or education course of their choice. The course does not have to be related to the media.
Alternatively, members can take a course offered by CWA/Nett, a program of our U.S. parent union, the Communications Workers of America. CWA/Nett provides online and in-person training designed to help media workers expand their skills.
Please let your CMG colleagues know about the grant.
