Apply now for Community Social Services education funds

The Community Social Services Labour Adjustment and Education Fund Committee is calling for new applications from members working in the community social services sector.

  • If you were laid off as of April 1, 2011, have had a reduction in hours and are currently a union member covered by the Community Social Services Bargaining Association Collective Agreement


  • If you are a current employee who has successfully completed the probationary period in a Community Social Services Bargaining Association collective agreement job and are interested in skills development, you may be eligible for reimbursement of training costs up to a lifetime maximum of $5000.

The labour adjustment and education funds are available through a grant from the provincial government resulting from a joint request made by the Community Social Services Bargaining Association and the Community Social Services Employers Association, during the negotiation of the 2010 – 2012 collective agreement.

Applications are now being accepted on a first come, first served basis. Click the following links for detailed information on the conditions governing the LAEF and the application process, as well as application forms.
