YOU ARE NOT ALONE!  DONATIONS, EDUCATION, AND CONFERENCE OPPORTUNITIES


The Nova Scotia Fire Fighters Burn Treatment Society works exclusively with Canada Helps to accept donations for our programs. If you wish to contribute to the ongoing efforts of our Society, you may do so by clicking here or the link above.

 

Along with post hospital support, the Society also offers support for continuing education related to burn injuries as well as specific conferences recognized by the Society that we feel will benefit survivors of burn injuries.
.

The Canadian Burn Survivors Community Conference is held every second (2nd) year in a different Province within Canada. The first was held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in 2005. The NSFFBTS has hosted this conference twice in Halifax; in 2006 and again in 2018. More information on the Canadian Burn Survivors Community can be found on their website by clicking here. The Phoenix Society also hosts the World Burn Congress every year in a different State in the USA. Both conferences are designed around the social, mental and potential pysical needs of burn survivors.

The Nova Scotia Fire Fighters Burn Treatment Society occassionally provides limited funding for certain education opportunities and conferences related to the mental and physical treatment of burn care. These opportunities will be listed here with appropriate deadlines for applications. The deadlines are firm as the Board of Directors must meet to approve the expense(s). Submissions after the stated deadline will not be considered by the Board unless there are extenuating circumstances AND the Board has reasonable time to meet and discuss the expense. Below is a list of the following opportunities for funding:
