As of March, 2014, tuition for Block I and Block III at JIBC increased to $10,484 (to be paid by applicant). Please add $150.00 for books.
The Saanich Police currently offers a payment plan to assist new recruits. The Municipality of Saanich is willing to pay the recruit's $10,484.73 (subject to change) tuition fee up front and then collect it back through a payroll deduction over a 3 year period. This formal agreement is an option for recruits, as they do not have to participate and may deal directly with a financial institution of their choice.
While training at the Justice Institute of BC, the recruit candidate receives:
Probationary Constable salary
Paid accommodations close to JIBC
Daily meal allowance ($35.00 a day)
One round-trip ferry ride for each block of training.
