Minister Delorey Announces CCA Bursary Program

Sister Louise Riley – Chair of the Long Term Care Coordinating Committee, and CUPE NS President – Nan McFadgen attended a panel discussion today in Annapolis Valley where Minister Randy Delorey made an announcement at the Kingstec Nova Scotia Community College about government investing $460,000 into the launch of a bursary program for individuals taking the CCA Program.  Delorey says there will be 115 bursaries worth $4000 each, which will cover tuition and books to cover the program for students attending NSCC or Université Sainte Anne.

Delorey stated “Our hope is that this financial assistance will remove the barriers for some students waiting to enter the field, and encourage more to enrol – and interim, as I’ve mentioned earlier, help address staffing challenges across the workforce”
