What's the cost?


We offer scholarships to cover all the (reasonable) expenses associated with the program. There is a sliding scale fee

  • $1000 (professional development)
  • $400 (employed)
  • $200 (fixed and limited income)
  • Fully funded scholarships are available on request.

Arrangements for familycare are available to support participants’ individual situations.

Our first two retreat weekends are in Kananaskis Country. Accommodation, transportation, and all meals are provided. Shuttles will depart from Edmonton and Calgary for both Kananaskis retreats. We do expect that people living outside of Edmonton and Calgary will be able to get themselves to and from those locations independently, and we’re willing to help with that if needed. The final 2 session weekends are in Edmonton and we expect that participants will be able to make their own travel arrangements for both sessions. Edmonton accommodations and meals are the responsibility of each participant to arrange for themselves. We will support participants in arranging billeting for the two weekends in Edmonton. We are providing snacks, lunches and Saturday dinner for the Edmonton weekends.
