Important Changes to Note:

As you are aware we undertook the task of moving our current PD Funds application and reimbursement process to an online platform on our new website which is scheduled to be activated July 3rd.

Due to this transition applications for term one 2018/2019 (September 1st ,2018 – January 31st, 2019) professional development will be accepted beginning July 3rd. At this time our new system is scheduled to be up and running, and the application and reimbursement process will be completed online.

Please note:  The amount of funds each member is currently eligible for will be transferred to the new system.  However, beginning September 2019 each member will receive access to an additional $800 annually, to a maximum of $1600 in total eligibility.  The PD Funds allocations will work the same way our HSA does.  This is the most fair, efficient, and economical manner available to allocate funds. 

Watch for more information to come regarding the establishment of an account and all the new platform has to offer.




We would like to welcome Karen Topma to Elk Island Local 28 as our new administrative assistant. Karen’s experience and skills will be an asset to our local and we look forward to working with her.  You can reach Karen on the local phone (587)988-3663 or by email at elkislandpublicata@gmail.com.  Karen’s hours of work are Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and Wednesdays 11:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at our local office #847- 33 Blackfoot Road.
