Parental Leave

UAlberta does not have a parental leave provision for postdocs.

Postdocs are also ineligible to receive employment insurance from the Government of Canada because they do not contribute to the EI program.

Note: Some funding agencies will provide parental leave supplements where the agency reimburses the supervisor for parental benefits paid to a postdoc. Postdocs and supervisors should refer to regulations of the funding agency for details.
