UBC is a world-leading academic institution that is also one of Canada’s best places to work. We are committed to creating an outstanding workplace for our more than 15,000 employees – and one way we do this is by offering our employees an extensive benefit package to support their continued health and wellbeing.

Getting Started

If you’re a new employee, begin with the Getting Started section. This is where you can find out about the benefits you and your dependents are eligible for and how to sign up for payroll, benefits and your pension.

Benefits Details

New and current employees can find information about benefits in Benefit Details, which explains everything from dental and extended health coverage to vacations, professional development opportunities and life insurance. Check out the benefit plan for your specific employee group to learn what unexpected medical costs you’re covered for while travelling out of province, confirm the sick leave policy that applies to your employee group and learn how to apply for maternity or parental leave.

Claims & Forms

Our Claims and Forms section talks you through the process of submitting a claim and provides you with all the forms you’ll need to do so.


We invite you to read our Wellbeing & Benefits publications for UBC faculty and staff.
