Professional Development Funding
MPETA strongly believes that Professional Development is a vital part of being a Physical Educator and MPETA is committed to providing in-service training of teachers of physical education at all levels of the school system and disseminating information about current physical education developments.

The MPETA professional development fund was established through constitutional guidelines. Once this amount has been expended, no further monies will be available for PD assistance until the following December. Activities will be funded to a maximum of $300.00 in Canadian funds per year. A maximum of $100.00 will be funded, if the candidate was funded over $200.00 in the previous year. Following one year of reduced funding ($100.00) the applicant will again be eligible for $300.00.

Applications are taken on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis. Applications may be submitted no later than two weeks prior to an event.
