Maternity Leave

While the Labor Program doesn't have provisions for paid maternity leave, students who provide appropriate medical documentation can have some hours waived for the term based on their physician's recommendation.  As well, the Labor Program understands child care facilities do not accept newborns until a period of time has elapsed.  Student parents will not be penalized for circumstances beyond their control. 

Student parents are advised to contact the Labor Program and Student Payments Office directly to discuss their situation on an individual basis.
