Are there any costs to participate in the Supportive Care Assistant Program?
The Government of Canada has funded this program. This means that there is no tuition. In addition, there are no textbooks or equipment requirements. There is a limited number of bursaries available to help with costs related to childcare or other care of dependents.
However, there are some costs associated with the program and the work placement such as:
- Internet and computer access
- Fee for a criminal record check
- Any costs for immunizations
- Appropriate clothing and shoes for work placement (depends on the employer)
There may be additional requirements depending on the college or institute and the employer.
