PSW Education & Training Fund

Applications now CLOSED for 2021-23

As a Coordinating Organization, the Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (CILT) coordinates and administers the PSW Training Fund for Eligible Organizations within the jurisdictions of Central LHIN and Toronto Central LHIN. The Coordinating Organization acts as the primary contact for Eligible Organizations regarding applications and proposed training plans submitted.

Please note that we now collect and review Training Plans for two fiscal years (ex. 2021-2022 and 2022-2023). Also, Eligible Organizations will have the option to apply for project funding in the new Innovation Stream (please refer to the Program Description and Application Guide). 

Application Process:

  • Employers interested in applying for PSW Training Fund support are to submit two PSW Employer Training Plan Applications (one for the fiscal year of 2021-22 and one for the fiscal year of 2022-23). Employers will have received information on how to submit by email from PSWTraining@cilt.ca. If your organization is currently NOT part of the roster of employers, please send us an email and we will add your organization.
  • Eligible Organizations will need to provide all relevant information in support of their proposed training plan (i.e. program/course descriptions and invoices/cost estimates from the proposed education provider);
  • For organizations managing multiple sites, please send only one Training Plan Application, one Training Plan Application and one Innovation Project Application for the whole organization.
  • Eligible Organizations that want to pool resources together to facilitate a training session can submit one application for that purpose. Please note on the training plan who will be the lead and how costs are to be distributed amongst the Eligible Organizations involved.

Note:  No funding is fully or partially guaranteed upon submission of the Training Proposal.
