Childcare Support Plan (applications due February 01, 2021)
The Childcare Support Plan provides reimbursement for eligible daycare expenses to Queen's faculty and staff with dependent children under the age of seven (7) attending a childcare facility. In addition, specific plans provide reimbursement for eligible expenses for dependent children between the ages of seven (7) and up to the end of the month in which they turn twelve (12). More information can be found on the FAQ page.
Tuition Support Plan (applications due February 28, 2021) **Registration for GFT faculty is NOW OPEN**
The Tuition Support Plan provides post-secondary tuition support for the dependent children (under 25) and spouses or partners of eligible Queen's faculty and staff attending a university or college recognized under Universities Canada (formerly the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada) or Colleges and Institutes Canada (formerly the Association of Canadian Community Colleges). Attendance at institutions outside Canada will be evaluated individually based on accreditations and the tuition plan for the employee group. More information can be found on the FAQ page.
If you have specific questions about either plan, please contact your HR Advisor according to your department.
Why CTAQ is Important to You!
The Role of CTAQ can be briefly summarized by this excerpt from the incorporation document:
"To advance and promote the welfare of teaching clinicians in hospitals associated with Queen's University in the broadest sense."
CTAQ is most visible in its role as one of the four signatories of the South Eastern Ontario Academic Medical Organization (SEAMO). CTAQ, along with Kingston Health Sciences Centre, Providence Care Hospital and Queen’s University entered into an alternate funding arrangement with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care in 1994.
The majority of the funding for clinical teachers is provided through this arrangement. Once an agreement has been reached with the MOHLTC, the CTAQ Executive is actively involved in the governance of SEAMO. CTAQ has 5 elected members on the SEAMO Governing Committee. This representation gives us a very strong voice in SEAMO and provides an important forum for communication and cooperation with the university and teaching hospitals.
