The deadline to apply for the CUPE 3903 Childcare Fund is May 31. If you have already applied (and received money) in the fall or Winter term then you do not need to apply again.
The Childcare Fund is for all 3903 members who incur costs related to the care of children under the age of 13 (or 18 if the child has additional needs). The committee has heard from several members who thought they were not eligible because their child is not in daycare so we want to be clear that this fund is to help cover ANY cost related to children, not just childcare!
You can find the application form here (or as a Word document from the Childcare Fund page) or in the union office (143 Atkinson). The application does need to be mailed or dropped off to the union office as we do not accept applications by email. You will need to provide proof of parental responsibilities by providing documentation such as, but not exclusive to, copies of birth certificates or guardianship papers. Please note that you also need to provide you social insurance number and date of birth. For children with disabilities/additional needs a letter from a medical care provider shall be submitted.
If you have any questions email firstname.lastname@example.org.
