Account 2018 was established as a result of a Strategic Action Plan initiative approved at the Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly (AMPA) 2021. This account has a three-year mandate ending in June 2024. Its purpose is to provide funding to support Anti-Racism and Equity Training for Districts and Bargaining Units.
The details of how to access this account can be found in the OSSTF/FEESO Financial Handbook.
A District/Bargaining Unit may make an application on a first-come, first-serve basis. Districts/Bargaining Units can apply for this funding in subsequent years. Priority will be given to Districts/Bargaining Units who are applying for the first time.
Funding may be used to cover expenses such as:
- trainers (including time release, transportation, accommodation, and meals),
- one day of release for trainees to participate in training, and/or
- any educational materials needed for any training.
To obtain funding, the District or Bargaining Unit must complete an application and submit it to the Equity Officer (Equity.Officer@osstf.ca). Applications must consist of an overview of the training and an itemized list of costs associated with the event. The Equity Officer will review applications in consultation with the in-house Equity Team.
If you need assistance with this application or are looking for ideas for training, please contact Jennifer Seif.
