The Unifor Family Education Centre, located in Port Elgin, offers a wonderful opportunity for our members to avail themselves of training opportunities. There are a number of courses relating to Union Activism, as well as Helath and Safety, Women's issues, Environmental Issues and more. Weekend conferences also are hosted there, from CPP/EI to Workers of Colour, Recreation to LGBT. There is also a program that runs during the summer called Family Education. This program allows members to attend with their families, and they all learn more about Unifor, union activism, the benefits of belonging to a trade union, and issues facing Canadian families. All PEL courses are covered by the Employer paid PEL fund, that all members are entitled to access. Weekend conferences are covered by the Local, and Family Education is covered by the National. All your meals are included with your lodging at the Centre, just steps from the beach at Lake Huron.
