General Information: Clinicians working in stroke care within the West GTA Stroke Network Region (Mississauga Halton and the Central West Local Health Integration Network) can be funded for up to a maximum of $750.00 per fiscal year to support attendance at stroke related courses which align with best practice. Please note that the educational opportunity must occur within the same fiscal year in order to be considered for funding. Continuing education applications will continue to be accepted until the allocated funds for that fiscal year are used up.
An application review committee reviews all of the funding applications. The application review committee will assess whether the course content is supported by best practice. Please note that the committee strives to ensure fair representation throughout the West GTA Stroke Network region when considering multiple applications. Final approval to fund the applicant is made by the West GTA Stroke Network Director. The turnaround time for application review is approximately 4-6 weeks.
In order to apply for funding please complete the application below. Applications will be accepted either before or after course attendance, however, applicants must pay for courses in advance and submit original receipts. If funds are not used due to course cancellation or inability to attend a course, funds must be returned to the West GTA Stroke Network. A copy of the certificate of attendance must be submitted following course attendance. Please note that the Application for Continuing Education Funding cannot be used to support attendance at the Canadian Stroke Congress.
