This workshop is open to Canadian civil society organizations and professional associations active in international development. Membership in OCIC is not a requirement, and Universities and Colleges and representatives from the Private Sector are not eligible. Participants must represent a civil society organization or professional association, and must be eligible to apply for the Voluntary Sector Fund (VSF) (please visit www.acdi-cida.gc.ca/vsf for full eligibility criteria).

This training will be conducted in English. Travel subsidies and accommodation will be provided to participants required to travel from a distance. A per diem allowance will be provided to eligible participants to enable them to participate fully in this training opportunity.

As registration is limited to 20 participants, only one representative per organization may attend. Preference will be given to organizations that have not already participated in this training initiative. As registration will be taken on a first-come, first serve basis, potential registrants are advised to request a registration form by email to Stephanie at admin@ocic.on.ca.
