Allied Health Professional Development Fund (AHPDF)
HealthForceOntario provides financial support for health professionals through the Allied Health Professional Development Fund (AHPDF). The purpose of the fund is to develop skills and enhance knowledge and leadership capacity among allied health professionals. Practicing members of nine allied health professions, including MLTs, are eligible to apply for as much as $1,500 per year for professional development courses and programs. Learn more about AHPDF.

To further support professional development, the AHPDF has invested in a multi-year subscription to an Electronic Health Library. Allied health professionals who are eligible for AHPDF education grants are also able to create an account at www.ahpdf.ca to access its extensive, practice-focused Electronic Health Library powered by EBSCO Health. These evidence-based resources can help allied health professionals grow their professional knowledge and expertise in the care of Ontarians.
