A great opportunity to expand your career and employment skills!

The Faculty of Land & Food Systems has approximately 200 Teaching Assistant positions available during 2015 Winter Session (September 2015 to April 2016).   East listed course will be assigned a set number of TA support hours.  Instructors are responsible for determining the assigned number of hours for each TA.  TA’s are appointed based on their classification (see SCHEDULE A – WAGES AND CLASSIFICATIONS of the CUPE 2278 Collective Agreement).

Please note this is a NEW online application that we started using for 2015 Summer Session TA’s.  Carefully read all instructions and provide all requested information.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

One last note – over the last 10 months, there have been several changes to the SIN application process for international students that have resulted in delays in obtaining new or renewed SIN’s.  International students must be able to provide an SIN and a valid study permit that covers the terms of their assigned TA appointment to secure a TAship offer, otherwise the offer will be rescinded.  Offers for 2015 Winter Session are expected to be made between June – end of July 2015 so please make sure you have the required documentation.

Information on TA’ing with the Faculty of Land and Food Systems can be found on our TA Portal here:
