Registered Supportive Recovery Assisted Living Residences - Training Bursary Fund
Email address *
As part of a broad initiative to strengthen the quality, consistency and accountability of supportive recovery services in British Columbia (BC), the Community Action Initiative (CAI) has established a Training Bursary Fund to support employees of eligible agencies to participate in courses, workshops, certificate programs or other formal training opportunities.

Proposed training must include knowledge or skill development that will enhance the employee’s ability to support clients with substance use challenges in one or more of the following categories:

• Counselling
• Crisis Intervention and Conflict Resolution
• Intervention for Substance Use Disorders
• Trauma-Informed Practice
Applicants must operate a Supportive Recovery Assisted Living Residence that is registered with the Assisted Living Registry ( Funding will be awarded to the agency itself, not the individual staff member or volunteer taking the training.

Courses must be offered by a post-secondary institution, health authority, or not-for-profit organization. The amount of funding available is determined by the total number of units listed in the Assisted Living Registry for each residence:

• Residences registered for 4-10 units in total may apply for up to $4,000
• Residences registered for 11-30 units in total may apply for up to $6,000
• Residences registered for more than 30 units in total may apply for up to $8,000

Eligible costs include: registration fees, course costs, required course training material, travel costs and backfill staffing costs.
