If your district does not have an active DPAC, contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can assist with coordinating the subsidy for your district.

To apply for the travel subsidy, the DPAC submits the online Travel Subsidy Claim by December 10, 2022 (claim form will be available after the Summit). Late applications will not be accepted. Payments will be issued to the DPAC within 6-8 weeks of submission, unless other arrangements are made with BCCPAC in advance.

Only the most economical travel arrangements will be reimbursed. For example, depending on airfare prices and distance, it may be more economical to fly to Vancouver than drive ... plan your trip carefully.

  • Mileage: Reimbursement of $0.61 per kilometre for the return trip between delegate’s home address and hotel/airport, verified by Google Maps.
