Applications for the 2020 LiVE Conference Bursary Now Open!

Creating Connections is this year's theme for PAVRO's Leaders in Volunteer Engagement Conference 

May 14th and 15th at Centennial College in Toronto.


One of PAVRO’s strategic goals is to provide and facilitate professional development opportunities for our members through bursaries. Bursaries are awarded every year to successful applicants who wish to attend the annual conference. Check back later this year to download and submit your bursary application.  

The bursary covers the cost of a  2 day pass for conference registration only. Transportation and accommodation costs will be the recipient’s responsibility.

The approximate value of the two day conference bursary for 2020 is $350 plus HST. Payments will be made by PAVRO directly to the conference committee. These bursaries are non-refundable, non-transferable and shall have no cash value to the recipients.

Applications are due by Friday, March 13th.  Successful applicants will be notified Friday, March 27th in order to register for conference.
