On January 19th, 2017 CUPFA signed a letter of agreement (LOA) concerning the posting of courses for the Summer Term.  A similar LOA was signed in 2012, 2014 and 2015.  This LOA will apply only to the current year.  » Download LOA January 19 2017

The minor modifications of this new protocol were agreed to by CUPFA following discussions that would accommodate the Employer, while keeping the dates at the end of the process intact.  The Employer’s position was that the timing of the initiation of the hiring process was difficult to incorporate into their deadlines.  This new process will now give the same amount of time as that allocated for the other hiring processes in the May and October periods.

The dates will be modified as follows:

Posting deadlines: Changed from February 1st to February 10th

Application deadlines: Changed from February 15th to March 3rd

Recommendation deadlines: Changed March 15th ie. March 24th

Contract printing deadline: Unchanged April 1st 

Contract signing deadline: Unchanged April 15th 

Please note  that the final contract signing deadline remains unchanged.
