Core Workplace Representative training consists of three full days of in-person training, held at the AMAPCEO offices in Toronto. Participants are entitled to paid leave from the workplace to attend the training and, if required, paid leave for travel time to and from Toronto, hotel accommodation and reimbursement of meals (lunch is provided on each day).
Workplace Representative training is offered 2-3 times a year. We will contact you at your personal email when the training is being offered.
The maximum enrolment for each training session is 20, although we maintain a ‘wait list’ for those applying after the maximum is reached, in case earlier applicants drop out. A second lens, however, is applied to give priority to applicants from under-serviced areas (defined as either a ratio of more than 75 members for every Workplace Representative or, in smaller bargaining units, a minimum of two Workplace Representatives for the unit). Currently, all Districts in the City of Toronto, as well as the North Bay Community, have been designated as under-serviced and, therefore, as high priority areas.
Thanks very much for your interest!
