TRAVEL SUBSIDIES (by Monday, October 14, 2019):

A limited number of partial travel subsidies will be available to assist First Nations participants who would like to attend the FNFC Annual General Assembly but do not have access to adequate funding. Only one subsidy per organization or community will be available. Funding is limited and requests are approved on a rolling basis, so early application is recommended.

Due to high demand, partial subsidies will be provided (travel costs, mileage and accommodations will be covered; meals, incidentals and other costs will not be reimbursable). Subsidy amounts may vary depending on the number of funding requests received.

Participants who require a subsidy must apply in advance. Please contact the FNFC at info@fnfisheriescouncil.ca to request an online travel subsidy application form. The deadline to submit travel subsidy applications is Monday, October 14, 2018.

If you plan to apply for travel subsidy, please review the FNFC Travel Subsidy Guidelines.
