Spark Launches Today

SafeCare BC knows funding can be challenging when trying to make positive safety changes. That’s why we created Spark.

What is Spark?

Spark is a grant program created by SafeCare BC for continuing care organizations that want to boost safe handling or violence prevention initiatives at their organization. Organizations selected will receive up to $6,500 to support safe handling or violence prevention at their worksite.

Why You Should Apply

Continuing care workers face some of the highest workplace injury rates in BC. These injuries affect everyone—organizations, workers, and clients and residents. We want to help, because, like you, we value everyone’s health and safety.

If you’re selected for funding, here’s what you’ll get:

  • Up to $6,500: You can use this funding to help pay for education and training, learning tools, and back-filling for staff.
  • Guidance from SafeCare BC’s health and safety experts: We’ll help you design an action plan for your health and safety program

Applying is Easy

Applying to Spark is simple:

  1. Complete and submit the online application by May 31, 2019.
  2. If your online application is selected, you’ll move to the next step—the program proposal.
  3. If your program proposal is selected, then you’ll receive funding.
