Winter 2015 Tuition Fee Credit - Deadline January 30 2015

If you wish to apply for the Tuition Fee Credit Plan, you have until January 30 2015 to do so.

The Tuition Fee Credit Plan reimburses a portion of a student's tuition fees if registered at the University of Ottawa, and if the student is the child or the spouse of a Part-Time Professor. If the Part-Time Professor is a part-time student at the University of Ottawa, they may apply for the credit.

To apply, go to Human Resources' Infodesk, located in Tabaret Hall, room 019 and complete the application form.

Extended Health Insurance Plan - Deadline January 30 2015

Members holding appointments during the Winter 2015 session, may opt into the medical plan at the time of appoinment for a period of twelve months. The deadline to opt into the plan for this session is January 30 2015.

To opt into the medical plan, contact Human Resources at 613-562-5832 or [email protected] before January 30 2015. For more information on the medical plan through Manulife, please visit our website or the Human Resources website.


Pension Plan

APTPUO members, who have worked during the previous calendar year, have access to the University-administered APTPUO Pension Plan. 

To enroll in the plan, contact Human Resources directly at 613-562-5832 or [email protected] or visit HR's Infodesk, located in Tabaret Hall, room 019.

There is no deadline to enroll in the plan. However, the Association strongly encourages members to enroll at the beginning of the session to avoid paying all of the contributions at once.


Employee Card

Your employee card gives you access to the services at the University (library, gym, etc.). It also gives you access to discounts through the Privileges program. If you have lost your card, or if you are a new employee, you can receive a new card with Human Resources.

These leaves are usually not paid, and the length of the leaves depends on the nature of the leave. Click the links above for more information about each leave.
Part-time Professors may request the aforementioned leaves by contacting their department (or faculty if no department).
If the request is denied, contact the Association immediately. The Association will provide assistance.
