Political Action and Leadership Opportunities
There are many political action training and leadership opportunities open to HSA members across the province. Whatever your level of knowledge and experience about the political process, there’s an opportunity for you to learn new skills and put them to use.
Consider applying for one or more of the following:
Political Action Fund
The Political Action Fund (PAF) is a financial assistance resource for members who wish to engage in political activities that support progressive work and campaigns around the province.
This fund can be accessed for a variety of activities, for example:
- attending a workshop offered by a labour council;
- participating in an election training or skills development program; or
- helping on a campaign run by an organization supported by HSA.
This fund helps members engage in political action activities around the province and advances the issues facing our communities and the labour movement. Per-application fund limits are reviewed annually by the Political Action Committee.
For more information about the Political Action Fund and to apply for funds, download the application package here.
