EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT FUND
Established March 1, 2006
To assist and encourage employees to increase or upgrade their skills, thereby increasing their career options, Article 15.4.2 of the Collective Agreement with CUPE 1975 provides for an Employee Development Fund. Effective March 1, 2006, all applications will be processed using this Fund and these Guidelines. Due to the nature of the Fund, employees are reminded that reimbursement is on a first-come-first-served basis of eligible applications. Consequently, applications may be denied due to a lack of funds. Should the Fund be depleted, Human Resources will post a notice on this website.
