2024 Family Education Program


Does a family vacation on the shores of beautiful Lake Huron in Ontario at a resort-like facility where accommodations and food are all looked after at no cost to your members or the local sound too good to be true? Unifor’s Family Education Program offers this and so much more.

The Unifor Family Education Program is funded by the National Union. There is no cost to the Local Union and you are not required to have PEL negotiated in your collective agreements in order to have members participate in the program.

The Department will be hosting two sessions in 2024.

  1. Sunday, July 7th to Sunday, July 14th inclusive
  2. Sunday August 11th to Sunday August 18th inclusive (ASL interpretation available)

The Call Letter and an application form can be found attached. Please have each member of your local interested in participating in the Family Education program complete the application and return it via email to [email protected] no later than Friday April 12th, 2024.

Members are not eligible if they attended the Family Education Program within the last (7) seven years. The program is open to members and their immediate families (spouse/partner and dependant children up to and including 18 years of age only). This does not include grandchildren, nieces, nephews etc.

Successful applicants will be notified beginning the week of May 6th, 2024.

Also find attached, a poster that can be displayed in workplaces that your local represents. We have provided space on the poster for you to write in your Local Union contact person along with their contact information. Additionally, Eligibility Requirements and Instructions are attached with the Call Letter.

If you require further information, please send an email to [email protected] and one of our Administration staff will get back to you.

I look forward to meeting and sharing this wonderful experience your members and their families.

In solidarity,

Roland Kiehne
