Frequently Asked Questions

When am I eligible for benefits coverage?

Professors teaching a workload of at least 33% are eligible for immediate benefits coverage. Hourly paid teachers are not eligible for group insurance coverage.

Do I have to be covered by this insurance plan?

Participation in the basic health insurance plan is mandatory for all eligible teachers. However, a professor may, by giving prior written notice to the College, request to be exempted from participation to basic health and dental insurance plan, provided that he or she can submit proof of similar coverage under a different group insurance plan.

Once I am covered, can I opt out of a portion of my benefits?

Yes. Based on La Fédération nationale des enseignantes et enseignants du Québec’s (FNEEQ’s) current agreement with La Capitale, professors may opt out of life insurance for themselves and dependants, as well as dental care, and accidental death and dismemberment insurance in accordance with the provisions of the group insurance policy.

Will a leave affect my insurance coverage?

Professors who continue to pay their insurance premiums will experience no interruption in coverage as a result of an approved leave.

What if I am going on leave?

Faculty members with questions about sick leave, maternity, paternity, and other related leaves should contact the Benefits office, local 1373.

Faculty members with questions about leaves of absences, voluntary workload reductions, sabbaticals and other time away from teaching should contact the Human Resources Administration Technician (Faculty), local 1375.
