The New Website Has Been Launched!!


Important Changes to Note:


All members of Elk Island Local 28 are now able to register for and access the members-only section of this website.  Visit and then simply click on the Members/EasyPD tab at the top of the page and you will be led through the registration process. When you have submitted all required information, there will be a delay before full access is granted - your registration eligibility needs to be verified because ONLY certificated employees of Elk Island Public Schools are active members of Local 28. When your information has been verified, you will receive an email confirmation. After that you may explore the members-only area fully which gives you access to our EasyPD application for applying for professional development funds and later will also have other information pertinent to members of Local 28.


In order to verify your eligibility, you MUST submit your teaching certificate number, so please have your card handy. As well, you must provide a PERSONAL email address - EIPS email contacts will not be accepted by our system.



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  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.
