The City's disability program is self-financed by the employer and employees, and it includes a team of in-house specialists who support employees during medical absences and help them return to work. This approach ensures the organization is fiscally responsible and gives employees fast access to medical resources.
A pension might not be the first thing you think about when looking for a new employer, but a secure pension that is matched (+1%) by your employer is an essential part of planning for your future. City employees who belong to the Local Authorities Pension Plan (LAPP) or the Special Forces Pension Plan (SFPP) which offers a defined benefit pension plan upon retirement. Employees who belong to Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 70 or CUPE Local 70 – Library, will receive pension benefits once the required number of hours are met.
