Allied Health Professional Development Fund


Please note that from April 1, 2017 we will accept only online applications in order to process education grants more efficiently. Applications submitted by fax, email, and regular mail (or courier) will no longer be accepted at that time.

We are now accepting applications for education grants for professional development activities completed between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017.

Recipients of funding from the Allied Health Professional Development Fund will be issued T4A tax information in accordance with the Income Tax Act. The T4A form outlines the total funding issued during the calendar year. This information is reported to the Canada Revenue Agency. The T4A forms for the 2016 calendar year will be sent to recipients of funding by the end of February 2017. For information about Canadian income tax law please contact the Canada Revenue Agency.

All fields of the application form, including the College Registration Number and the Social Insurance Number, must be completed. Only complete applications will be accepted. No exceptions will be made. Late and/or incomplete applications will be declined. Please note that due to a high volume of submissions, we are unable to confirm the receipt of applications or provide updates about the status of applications over the phone.
