Professional development fund for HSPBA members: applications now available

The 2012-2014 HSPBA collective agreement includes a new $225,000 Professional Development Fund for use by all HSPBA members, including HSA members, over the term of the collective agreement.

To maximize the number of members eligible to apply for the funding, there will be two deadlines: One for courses commenced between April 1, 2013 and September 30, 2013 and another for courses commenced between October 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014.

HSA will cover the cost of tuition, fees, books and related expenses to a maximum of $1,000 for courses taken during these periods.
