Posted April 13, 2017

ACT is hosting several upcoming training opportunities this Spring and Summer. Register soon to ensure your seat and take advantage of early bird rates.

Special funding from MCFD will allow ACT to provide 50 bursaries for each of our larger events to allow parents and caregivers (including foster parents) to register for $25 a day (details here).

  • Access will be provided on a first come, first registered, basis.
  • Each registrant will have access to only one in-person bursary until March 31st, 2018.
  • Additional bursaries will be available for web streamed events, including this month’s Focus on Research Conference, accessible province-wide.
