On Dec. 21, 2017, Policy #82 (Relocation of Faculty Members and Senior Management Staff) was amended. Policy #82 and its related procedures establish the eligibility and extent of travel and relocation assistance from central funding for the hiring or internal transfer of faculty members and senior management staff.
The changes increase the maximum amount that will be reimbursed from UBC’s Central Relocation Fund to relocating faculty and senior staff members. The specific procedure amendments are as follows:
- $1,000 increase for moves within Canada;
- $2,000 increase for moves outside Canada for designated professional or designated professional accompanied by dependent(s); and
- $1,000 increase for moves outside Canada for designated professional plus spouse, or designated professional plus spouse accompanied by dependent(s).
For a summary of the amended maximum amounts that will be reimbursed as of Dec. 21, please refer to the Central Relocation Fund Contribution Table. A PDF copy of the approved procedures for Policy #82 is available here.
