Establishment and Affiliation - Professional Growth Networks
Professional growth networks are subject to all STF policies as outlined in the Federation’s Governance Handbook. Networks may be established in a subject field, service area or interdisciplinary group with membership open to any person with a supportive interest in the network.
The Federation does not exercise any control over network elections or how they choose to spend their basic grant funds. Professional growth networks exist as separate entities subject to the conditions outlined in the organizational and operational policies and processes.
Professional growth networks are advised to register as charitable organizations or to incorporate if significant funding is made available through lottery or other government grants. Information may be obtained from the Canada Revenue Agency.
