Did you know vacation requests can be submitted through Workday?

Workday will allow regular and temporary staff with an appointment of greater than one year to submit requests for absences, such as vacation, directly to their managers. The status of requests will be visible to both employee and manager, increasing efficiency and streamlining approval processes. With Workday, we’ll have a standardized system for staff vacation and absence that that aligns with University policy and Ontario legislation requirements.

Upcoming Training

Training is planned to begin in November and details will be available on the Workday website. Please visit the Workday training web page for updates. If you have any questions, contact
