Please join us to dig deeper on the future direction of ECEBC. This work is very important as we move forward as your provincial organization. The Innoweave Impact and Strategic Clarity module is designed to help us examine ECEBC’s current efforts and gain greater clarity on:
- What impact we aim to achieve
- How we will achieve it
- How we will measure success
For the past 7 months ECEBC has been part of this process and now is ready to share broadly with its members. After listening to a presentation of the work done to date participants will be asked to give input on:
• Will our strategies or activities lead to the desired outcome?
• Is anything missing?
• Are these the necessary and sufficient activities?
• Other stakeholders will answer similar and different questions.
Professional development certificates will be provided.

ECEBC is pleased to announce that the ECE Student Bursary Program will run for the Summer 2017 semester (May to August 2017). Summer 2017 Bursary applications are now available.
During the summer of 2014, the Early Childhood Educators of BC received funding from the Ministry of Children and Family Development to establish a bursary fund for students enrolled in early childhood educational programs. To respond to identified needs, priority will be given to:
• Aboriginal students,
• Students attending early childhood educational programs with an Aboriginal focus,
• Students working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation, and
Students working to achieve a special needs educator designation.
All students registered for ECE courses during the Summer 2017 semester (May to August 2017) at an approved training institution are encouraged to apply. Students will be able to apply for up to $300 per course, to a maximum of $1,500 per semester.
Eligible applicants must be enrolled at an approved educational institution in an ECE program, with priority given to Aboriginal students, or students enrolled in ECE programs with an Aboriginal focus, or working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation, or working to achieve a special needs educator designation.

It came to our attention this afternoon that a fake website has been created on the Internet using our name and acronym, ECEBC, and has been advertising on Craigslist. The website even has a "Join ECEBC" section that asks for your name and email address. We are reporting the matter to the RCMP and hope to have the website taken off the Internet promptly.
Please remember that our official and only website is at ECEBC.CA and that you should never give out personal or financial information in response to unsolicited emails.
In the meantime, if you have been a victim of what you believe may be a fake website, or if you receive any suspicious emails purporting to be from ECEBC, or to report any other fake websites masquerading as ECEBC's website, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Fake ECEBC website." Remember to copy the full URL (website address) from your browser into the body of the email.
