Application Criteria

Daytrippers is excited to support the many teachers and students across Canada who have identified a need for funding. 

Our Trips Selection Criteria includes the following six principles:

  1. Applications must be for a public Canadian school and classes must be Grades 1-8. Daytrippers does not fund high school or private school trips. Please note we are currently not accepting applications for kindergarten groups.
  2. All trip reimbursement requests, including in-class, virtual, or off-site experiences, must be expressed in Canadian currency. Should your trip supplier charge in a foreign currency, please ensure that all receipts/invoices include the Canadian dollar equivalent paid.
  3. Schools must clearly demonstrate the need for financial assistance.
  4. Trip requests must align with ministry curriculum. When unclear, a member of our team may seek clarification from you.
  5. The amount requested must not exceed $25/child to a maximum of $1500 CAD per application.
  6. Daytrippers reserves the right to adjudicate all applications at its sole discretion, notwithstanding the above criteria.

Please note: All reimbursements will be issued to the School – Daytrippers is unable to issue reimbursements to personal accounts. In the event that a Teacher/Applicant has paid for a trip with their personal accounts or credit cards, it is the School’s responsibility to reimburse the Teacher/Applicant prior to or upon receiving reimbursement from Daytrippers.
