Community Health Retraining Fund

If you were laid off after January 28, 2002 due to re-tendering, contracting out, or bumping from a health care job in the community subsector; or

If you are a current employee in a community subsector job and are interested in skills development, you may be eligible for reimbursement of training costs.

The retraining funds are available as a result of a settlement between health unions, health employers and the B.C. Government related to a June, 2007 Supreme Court of Canada ruling on Bill 29.

Check out more information about the Enhanced Disability Management Program (EHMP).

You can obtain further information and an application form below or by contacting the BCGEU by e-mail or telephone.
