The Professional Development Fund

Changes to PD Fund Allocation for 2019 - 2020

The PD Committee has voted to change the way the PD Fund is allocated to teachers.  Over the past few years, funding allocations have been made with the purpose of using the current PD fund and reducing a surplus. As the surplus has been mostly eliminated, funding allocations must be adjusted to accommodate both the needs of members and the lower fund amount available.

This change will be effective July 1, 2019.

Here’s a summary of the new allocations:

  1. Up to $800 is available per member per school year for CREDIT COURSES only.
  2. Up to $600 is available per member per school year for regular PD.
  3. Up to 30 applications per year for self-directed PD will be accepted (1 TTOC day per person per year).
  4. Additional TTOC days are no longer available.
  5. Only PD activities within Canada will be funded.
  6. Interest Based Group PD funding is no longer available.


If you have already applied for funding for summer activities, your application will be adjusted to reflect the new changes. We are in process of creating new forms; in the meantime please use existing forms and changes will be made at the DTA office.
