CEIU BC/YT $3000.00 New Activist Bursary  

New Activist is defined as follows:

  1. A member in good standing of BC/YT
  2. Does/has not actively participated in Union meetings, conferences, committees, and events.
  3. May have had some training
  4. May hold an elected position on a local executive
  5. May hold an elected position on the Regional Executive Council (not more than one term)

At the 2017 Presidents Conference a resolution was approved for a new activist bursary. The bursary is awarded in the fall of the prior year for use in the following fiscal year.

A new activist is not necessarily a young worker, it could be any activist that is newly engaged or re-engaged in the union. Generally, they do not sit on many committees or councils and may not be able to secure funding to attend events.

The money provided by the bursary can be used for any convention, conference or training and will be paid out after the event(s) unless an advance is requested.

Applications are due by November 15, 2018. Applications will be reviewed, and the successful applicant will be notified by the end of the November.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at if you need more information.

In solidarity,

Vanessa Miller
NVP - BC/YT Region
