Members Who Are Randomly Selected for Provincial Funding

Members that are selected for provincial funding will be contacted by email by the SUN office. Please watch for this email as you will be required to RSVP that you intend to accept the funding.

The SUN office will register and pay the registration fee for members who are selected and accept the funding. If further information is required to complete the registration form, you will be contacted by SUN.

Membership Policy 026-M-2007 outlines funding provided to external educational events and in some cases, provisions vary from event to event. Because these events are taking place virtually, funding is limited to wages and varies from event to event.
