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 can only apply for one of the two funding streams in each fiscal year and must choose which of the two training grants they will be applying for.

However, organizations that submit an application by March 31st, 2021, will be able to submit another application in the following fiscal year (between April 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022).
