There has been ongoing roof work over ECEBCís provincial office for almost three weeks, resulting in intermittent office closures at a momentís notice due to hazardous materials and smells creating an unsafe environment to work in. This has resulted in many delays in our ability to access the office on a regular basis to answer phone calls and respond to emails.
We have been advised that the roof work should be done by the end of the day on Friday, May 29. Please note that we might have to close the office without notice during this time, depending on how hazardous the work environment might be on any given day.
Due to this situation, it will take us some time to respond to phone calls and voicemails, and we thank you in advance for your patience.
ECEBC is pleased to announce that the ECE Student Bursary Program will run for the Winter 2015 semester (January to April 2015). Bursary applications are available at the link below.

• Aboriginal students,
• Students attending early childhood educational programs with an Aboriginal focus, and
• Students working to achieve an infant/toddler educator designation.
All students registered for ECE courses during the Winter 2015 semester (January to April 2015) 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.
