I assume we have to contact MC in this regard to see if the applications are available or whether a motion will be required to approve the application format ~ if this is the case, further delay expected.

A reminder of an email sent to me by Peter on June 7 about "when" the bursary will be available

We are in the process of putting it in place . Bursaries will be available during to 2013/2014 academic year, but not until after the school year starts. It will be administered independently by AUCC.

I believe AUCC is the name given to the group overlooking the bursary headed by Mr. Toope.

It is always so rewarding to see our children do well RR ~ that is what it is all about ~ the sacrifices and hardships. I can imagine how proud you are of her. From what I see you have a scientist and a writer in the family.

I hear ya on that Lory as for the on line courses I was told that they only can be covered as part of the VOC/REHAB for either the member or the spouse but only one can apply. I asked about my children and have yet to receive an answer as my daughter will be attending university his fall, I wanted to enrols her into the VOC/REHAB Program. Damn school is a tad expensive but that's the price you pay to have a scientist in your family.

Thank you so much Sparrow.
My daughter is done her secondary studies but needs to further her studies to enhance what she wants to accomplish. A special training is needed so she can become a Doula (labour support). The company teaches online but she does have to attend some classes for the hands on.
Maybe MC would provide me with phone number once it's in power.

Thanks again for your kindness

Widow of Veteran, thank you so much for your post and the time you spent with it ~  in our case, we paid for our three children to go through college and the fund won't assist us at this point.  I am certain many veterans are of the age where parents have already absorbed the costs for their children's post secondary schooling. I am also wondering about the online courses ~ upgrading courses as two of our children  will be continually upgrading in the computer field with accreditations but in the grand scheme of things, the bursary per family really is a drop in the bucket for education costs.
Wishing you and your daughter the very best in her studies ~ she deserves it.

Information about Education Funds

Post by Ex Member on Fri 28 Jun 2013, 09:48

As of now, after talking with MC. One bursary is allowed for each member. It can be used by the member, the member's spouse, child, grandchildren, nephew or niece.
In recognition of the hardships experienced by some members of the class, the parties have agreed to establish a $10 million bursary fund to be administered over a period of 15 years by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. This fund can be accessed by class members and their families for part-time or full-time study and is expected to generate bursaries of up to $1,300.00 for each eligible applicant.

MC is as of today june 28th.-2013, is still working with AUCC (??)  to set up details for the funds.
MC is saying that one bursary is allowed for each member and then we have the app that says it is suppose to generate bursaries of UP TO $1300.00 for each eligible applicants.
What am I not understanding? Is the applicant considered the member or is it each person that makes the demand?

Also, does anybody know if you have already taken a course for a second career, etc. in the previous years........will they refund?

Would they also allow someone to take further education as home school on computer for an employment if this person is not medically fit at the moment but it would benefit this person down the road?
This would be a total life change for my daughter if her schooling could be done at home. I'm actually excited for her if this could happen. It would be a big step for her.

If someone can give me even more info.......I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance
