Training Opportunities for Non-Profit Providers

Learn more about training opportunities including SkillsPlus maintenance training, and asbestos and fire safety training.

Non-Profit Portal Training

With support from BCNPHA, we are pleased to announce that we have developed an online Non-Profit portal to streamline the budget process and simplify the communication and exchange of documents between BC Housing and Non-Profits. These training sessions are required for Non-Profit Providers who are required to go through a budget and/or financial review process with BC Housing.

This new online portal will be launched this Fall.

To learn more about the training sessions and availability in your community, please go to: BC Housing Events page
