All TSSU members (as defined by the TSSU By-laws) with children under the age of 13, or those with children up to the age of 18 requiring additional care due to a physical or developmental disability, are eligible to apply for the TSSU Membership Childcare Fund.
The deadline to apply for the Childcare Fund during the Fall 2018 disbursement period will close on Monday, September 24th. However, there will also be a late application period, for the disbursement of funds during Spring 2019, which will close on Wednesday January 23rd.
Funds will be provided based on the SFU Child Care Society (CCS) rates as of September 1, 2017, according to the age of each child on the first day of the semester (see below for chart). Applications may require supplementary documentation of each child’s age (birth certificate, passport, notarized letter, etc.), but these do not need to be provided during the application process.
