Are you planning to take maternity and/or parental leave? There are two sources that define a teacher’s right to maternity and/or parental leave – the Employment Standards Code and the collective agreement. The Code provides for minimum standards applicable to all employees, while the collective agreement may provide for enhanced rights.

If you have questions regarding any provisions of maternity and/or parental leave, please contact your Local Association or the Teacher Welfare Department at 204-831-3055 or email
