The Family and Community Education Fund (FCEF) is now accepting applications for Labour Day celebrations!


It pays to plan your Family and Community Education Fund (FCEF) events early! Request funds for your large-scale Labour Day celebrations by June 11th.

Labour Day, on September 6th, is sooner than you think. The FCEF doesn’t provide funding for events retroactively, so apply today to secure funds for your Labour Day celebration. After our June 11th deadline, the final large-scale submission date for 2021 is in the Fall. Reach out to Gabriele Simmons, the FCEF Fund Co-ordinator, for support with your application and/or to begin contributing to the Fund.

Requests for projects under $5,000 can be sent to your District Education Co-ordinator at any time.
