Professional Development (PD) Funds are available to several employee groups to support learning opportunities that enhance knowledge, work performance, and career growth at UBC.
M&P staff PD Fund individual maximum increased to $750
For the 2022/23 funding year, the individual funding maximum for Management & Professional staff (AAPS) has increased from $550 to $750. This $200 individual increase is possible due to cumulative funding increases made to the overall budget during the 2019-2022 UBC - AAPS Agreement period to support the increased use of PD Funds.
