A limited budget of sponsored funds is available to help with travel expenses for Indigenous attendees attending on behalf or representing their nation or community. Due to a limited budget, we have to limit the travel subsidy to only travel and accommodation expenses (i.e. no per diems) and 1 or 2 individuals from each First Nation communities in BC. We have budget limitations for each eligible individual with priority given to remote communities. A reimbursement submission form will be emailed post-conference and the deadline to submit it will be July 12. Funds will be dispensed shortly after July 12th.
Qualification for travel support for Indigenous attendees
