Travel support

As this is a regional event, members who reside in the Western Region but live more than 100 km from the site of the event are eligible for partial travel support in the form of one night’s accommodation, capped at the government rate as per the NJC travel directive.

This travel support is only available once per member per year, so members in Western Canada should also note there will be Tune Up events in Winnipeg on August 29 and in Vancouver on October 3.
