If you are a full-time graduate student and have worked as a TA, RA, Proctor, Marker, Tutor or Lab Demonstrator in the past, you might be entitled to job security.

Job security guarantees you a minimum of 130 hours of work per year during your first two (2) years of study (if you are a Master’s student), or during your first five (5) years of study (if you are a PhD student).

The University may fulfill job security obligations at any time of the academic year. Therefore, you might get a contract offer at any time during the Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer semesters. If you believe you will complete your program before the end of the academic year, you must contact your Department and provide a written confirmation from your thesis director.

Please note: Job security is not available for CO-OP students, students hired as Research Assistants whose work is related to their own thesis project, and Research Assistants paid with external funds.

If you have any questions about job security, please contact us at info@2626.ca. All questions and issues remain anonymous.
