A Note about Bursaries

ACT's training and information workshops on autism or ASD-related topics all cost ACT money to bring to you. We try to keep our costs as low as possible, although it's expensive to travel throughout the province and to put on events featuring high quality, expert presenters. Because of this, we have to charge a registration fee for all our events. We're confident that ACT workshops provide good value. Nonetheless, we understand that even a modest registration fee can be a barrier keeping some from accessing the training they need most. When this occurs, ACT provides individuals with a workshop bursary to make our events more affordable whenever our finances permit.

We cannot grant a bursary request AFTER you have already registered for a workshop. All requests must be made at least one week before the workshop date, to allow us time to process your application. Bursaries are provided as reduced workshop registration fees.

How do I apply for a bursary?
Call ACT at 604-205-5467 (toll free at 1-866-939-5188) before registering and speak to a staff member, or send an email to to make a bursary request.

Do I Qualify?
Anyone attending an ACT workshop is eligible if the cost is a barrier preventing attendance. Priority is given to BC residents and to parents and participants who are low income or who are facing significant travel expenses in addition to the workshop registration fee. We rely on your honest appraisal of your situation. If you cannot otherwise pay for the workshop please contact us. You are not required to provide documentation to support your request.

Where does the money come from?
Bursaries are funded in part by the Ministry of Children and Family Development and by private donors. ACT also provides bursary funds from our own resources.

ACT accepts donations for our bursary fund.
