PSW TRAINING FUND
LINKS2CARE IS LEAD AGENCY FOR PSW TRAINING FUND ADMINISTRATION
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care recognizes the important role of
personal support workers (PSWs) in the provision of care to Ontarians and supports
initiatives to ensure that PSWs have the capacity to provide quality health care in Ontario.
For the fiscal year 2017/18, the ministry has once again designated Links2Care as a lead agency
in the administration of the Ministry’s PSW Training Fund in support of PSW continuing
education and training.
The objective of the PSW Training Fund is to develop and foster a competent PSW
workforce to deliver high quality and safe client care in the home and community sector
that meets client needs through enhanced PSW continuing education and PSW certification.
Please note that the PSW Training Fund involves very specific criteria which is described in detail
in the following document: PSW Training Fund Program Description 2017-18. We ask that you read the
document thoroughly to familiarize yourself with the program and its eligibility requirements prior to
applying for funding.
