The Recruitment, Retention & Education Fund (RREF)

The Recruitment, Retention and Education Fund was created to support CUPE healthcare members under the jurisdiction of the PHCC to attend educational or upgrading courses to enhance their employability within healthcare where CUPE classifications would apply.

Priorities have been determined and will be given funding preference for Health Care Aides, Health Care Aides/Unit Clerks, Recreation Facilitators, Health Information Technicians, Sterile Processing Technicians, and others as deemed by the Committee.
