The Heritage Fund was begun in 2006 by the BCRMTA to benefit all branches. Each year a different project is chosen and is available to any branch.

The project for 2024/2025 is a Branch Continuing Education Project.
This project will assist branches at the local level to conduct continuing education events/workshops/masterclasses for their membership and community.

This Subsidy is available to all branches of BCRMTA regardless of size.
This Subsidy program is separate from the Professional Development Grant/Bursary available to branches with 40 members or less.
