Social Justice Conferences

Funding for the Regional Social Justice Conference Fund occurs on a biennial basis. Social Justice Chairs from each local will be notified when funding resumes. These grants are designed to provide funding for social justice conferences to be held throughout the province. The intent behind these grants is to build capacity and support the growth of social justice in a given region.
