Applications now open for 2021-2022 professional development funding for HSA members covered by HSPBA contract

Applications are now being accepted for funding to support HSA members who work under the Health Science Professionals Collective Agreement (HSPBA) and who are pursuing professional development. The continued funding was negotiated in the 2019-2022 collective agreement, with a $400,000 contribution to the fund each year.
“I encourage members to apply to this fund to support their professional development, as I know that HSA members are committed to keeping their skills and knowledge current in an ever-advancing modern health care team,” said HSA President Val Avery.
Under the funding program, eligible expenses are the cost of tuition, fees, books and travel expenses for courses, programs, or conferences to a maximum of $1,000 per member.
Applications are being accepted for courses, conferences, or workshops taken that start between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022. Programs must relate to professional development in a health science discipline being practiced in the public health care system.
