CUPE Ontario is committed to maintaining an accessible space for all of our union events and Convention 2012 is no exception.
I require an accommodation to participate in convention. How do I go about this?
Accommodation for members with special needs begins with completing an Access Request Form and submitting it to CUPE Ontario. Shortly after the application cut-off date you will be contacted so that the appropriate arrangements for convention can be made.
I require access to on-site child care for my child aged infant to 9 at Convention 2012. How do I go about this?
Members will have access the on-site child care at convention. Our child care staff are trained, early childhood educators who have developed a full day, inclusive and age appropriate program. Children with special needs are very welcome. Lunch and snacks are provided. On-site childcare can be requested through the On-Site Child Care Registration form. Child care at convention is free of charge.
My child aged 10 to 14 would like to participate in CUPE Ontario’s Youth Camp this year. How can they sign up?
Youth at convention between the ages of 10 to 14 will also be able to participate in our very exciting Youth Camp program which takes youth on a learning journey about unions with lots of fun things built in.
I require reimbursement of off-site child care or other dependant expenses due to attending Convention 2012. What options are available?
CUPE Ontario provides access to a fund for reimbursement of child care expenses that are in excess of your regular child care fees. For example, if your regular fees are $30 per day, and attending the 2012 CUPE Ontario Convention requires you to pay $40 per day, then you would be entitled to reimburse the “excess fees” of $10 per day.
I require access to materials in French, such as translated documents. How do I go about receiving these materials?
Materials for Convention 2012 are available in French, and materials created by CUPE Ontario on-site will be provided in French as well. In order to receive further convention materials in French, please check the “Trousse en francais” checkbox on your credentials form, or visit the website for materials in both official languages.
