RICHMOND, B.C. — To encourage dealership training, the RV Dealers Association of Canada board has created a one-time $1,000 dealership education grant to help cover training conducted between May 1, 2013, and May 31, 2014. However, applications must be turned in by May 31.

“We encourage all member dealers to apply as there is a limited number of grants available for each province/region, and they will be awarded based on the order in which applications are received,” said Eleonore Hamm, president of RVDA of Canda. “Do make the effort to apply.

  • Should a province or region submit less than 15 applications, remaining grants will be reallocated.
  • Proof of payment and successful course completion is required.
  • Total cost of education and training program(s) must be equal to or greater value than $1,000.

To apply, dealers must:
