Each year my office holds a number of workshops and seminars for new faculty.  Please ensure that all new tenure-stream, teaching-stream and CLTA appointments (i.e. who have started from January 1, 2009 onwards) in your unit are made aware of these sessions.

An Introduction to Canadian Taxes

Wednesday February 15, 2012, 8:45 a.m. – 12 noon, Faculty Club.

The Provost’s Office in conjunction with the Family Care Office and the Faculty Relocation Service hosts a workshop for new faculty members from outside Canada entitled Filing for the First Time: An Introduction to Canadian Taxes. Previous workshops have been very highly rated by participants.

Ruth Reimer from Green, Chencinski, Starkman and Eles (GCSE) will provide a workshop session which will introduce the process of filing taxes in Canada and discuss some of the details of filing in both Canada and the US. A concurrent session will answer questions for those completing forms for countries other than the US. Time will also be allowed for discussion, questions and answers. Some faculty members may also wish to arrange more individualized consultation with GCSE at their own expense.
