Initial Salary Step Calculation

last updated: Sept 28, 2018

New: SeeĀ Get to know your CA: initial salary step calculation for a detailed explanation of the initial salary step calculation.

All new partial-load and full-time faculty follow the same initial salary step calculation formula, outlined in the collective agreement (“JOB CLASSIFICATION PLANS FOR POSITIONS IN THE ACADEMIC BARGAINING UNIT“). The initial salary step is calculated based on the individual’s relevant educational and work experience.

Changes to the 2017-2021 collective agreement (from previous agreement):

  • Faculty hired prior to October 1, 2017 are capped at a maximum of six (6) years credit for formal qualifications.
  • For faculty hired after October 1, 2017, the cap for formal qualification credits is seven (7) years.
  • As of October 1, 2017, the College may grant up to 5 discretionary steps (previously 3 discretionary steps) to an individual on a case-by-case basis, at the hiring manager’s discretion.
