OCFA is very fortunate to have one of the best Professional Development Funds in the provinces. 

In the mid 1980's our faculty members were forward looking and wanted to ensure faculty would always have funds for professional development.   They graciously contributed their wage increases for a period of three years to an endowment fund.  

Our current  collective agreement mandates that the Faculty Professional Development Committee will be no less than 3% of the total budgeted salary for Permanent Full-time, Permanent Part-time, and Temporary Full-time Faculty employed during that budget year.

The  Budget is funded by eighty percent of the  annual interest earnings from the Faculty Development Endowment and where the interest earnings do not equal the required budget, an allocation from the College operating budget.

Twenty percent of the interest is reinvested in the Endowment, 

Please remember our Faculty Alumni who contributed to our their hard earned dollars for our advantage!
