Community Social Services Training Fund


In March 2020, The Federation of Community Social Services of BC was in receipt of a grant of $3,000,000 to support training and development to strengthen capacity and increase the numbers of skilled workers in BC’s community social services sector.

Funding will be prioritized to strengthen capacity-building, with a focus on (1) providing access to accredited training programs for organizations in the community social services sector and (2) meeting the challenges of recruiting and retaining a skilled workforce.


Organizations that submitted an application by March 31st, 2021, are able to submit another application in the following fiscal year (between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022).

As of April 2021, organizations can apply for both Individual and Organizational funding streams. You no longer have to choose between the two funding streams—if there is a need, you can submit an application for both.
