Travel Subsidies

Healthy Minds/Healthy Campuses aims to convene a diverse group of perspectives and experiences. However, we recognize that all community members may not have equal access to our Summit in New Westminster. We are pleased to offer a travel subsidy to support community members who will incur significant travel costs. We hope that this subsidy will help reduce barriers to participation in the Summit and bring our community closer together.


In order to qualify for a subsidy, each delegate group must include at least one student and one administrator (e.g. chair, dean, director, AVP, VP). Institutions are encouraged to match these available travel funds.

Subsidies may be applied to travel costs (airfare, ferry, vehicle travel) and accommodation costs (hotel, hotel parking).

Subsidy Amounts

Subsidy amounts are determined by geographic region and are designed to reflect travel costs incurred by community members.

  • Northern BC: $600 per group of four delegates

  • Kootenays: $450 per group of four delegates

  • Interior: $350 per group of four delegates

  • Vancouver Island: $250 per group of four delegates

Selection of delegate groups

Delegate groups will be selected via lottery. Up to four travel subsidies will be awarded in each region.

Responsibilities of selected groups

If your group is selected, you will be required to submit receipts to receive payment.


To apply for the subsidy program, email Stephanie Wilson, Summit Logistics Coordinator, at [email protected]. Please identify the members of your group, your campus, and the group’s contact person.


In order to allow groups enough time to make travel arrangements, please submit your subsidy application by 4.30pm on Wednesday, November 2. If your group is selected, you will be notified on Friday, November 4.

Pre-Summit Workshop: Issues and Solutions from Mental Health Works

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Join facilitator Margaret Tebbutt for a pre-Summit presentation from Canadian Mental Health Association's Mental Health Works.

"Issues and Solutions" introduces the Mental Health Works approach. You'll learn about the Mental Health Works philosophy and strategy, and learn more about mental health issues in the workplace. This fascinating look at the issues and solutions is provocative and engaging.

This presentation is a fantastic way to increase your campus leader's skills in mental health literacy and health promotion. It's an ideal training opportunity for administrators, managers and faculty.
