2023-2024 Transgender Fund Now Open

The Transgender Fund is an entitlement for YUFA members to support trans health and related services. It was gained during bargaining in 2015-16 and currently appears as Article 26.11 in the 2021-24 Collective Agreement. The Fund is $40,000 per annum. Any remaining funds from one year will be carried forward to the next.

For the 2023-24 academic year, the Fund will be disbursed in one application round.   The deadline to apply is Wednesday May 8, 2024 (end of day).

The Transgender Fund Committee understands “trans” to be a broad and inclusive term, which includes genderqueer, transgender, transsexual, gender-variant, and Two-Spirit, among others. All Trans members of YUFA are eligible to apply. Applications by YUFA members behalf of Trans dependents may also be considered.

The application (form-fillable pdf) is available here. The application form includes instructions on how to complete and submit the application.

A basic pdf version of the application is available here.

A word document (.docx) of the application is contained in the YUFA-M message announcing that the fund is open.
