**TRADES: For a trades program to be considered under Post-Secondary Funding, the program must meet all the above requirements.

  • For example, the Culinary Arts Certificate Program at Vancouver Island University, Okanangan College and University of Fraser Valley are all eligible programs because 1) they are an academic year in length, 2) they require Grade 12 and 3) they are at accredited public institutions
  • However, the Culinary Arts Program at Vancouver Community College is NOT eligible because it only requires Grade 10 courses
