Are you going abroad to provide humanitarian assistance? You could be eligible for a travel subsidy from the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions.
CFNU has a long tradition of support for international and Canadian organizations working for social and economic justice and for reconstruction and development. When the CFNU launched its International Solidarity fund over a decade ago, it joined other labour unions which mobilize resources to support initiatives that foster solidarity with the disadvantaged, whether those are disadvantaged by natural disasters or an unfair economic and social order.
The International Solidarity Fund supports worker-to-worker exchanges, provides humanitarian assistance, and strengthens the capacity of workers to advance the right to health care around the world. The deadline to apply for subsidies for travel in 2018 is December 31, 2017.
