Student Rates of Pay for 2017

To: Heads of Human Resources; Directors/Chiefs of Labour Relations and Compensation

Subject: Student Rates of Pay

The Secretary of the Treasury Board has approved new rates of pay effective for all students hired under Treasury Board Student Employment Programs.

The new rates for 2017 reflect a five point five percent (5.5%) increase on the 2014 rates (1.25% for 4 years with an additional 0.5% in the third year).

Students attending college in order to participate in a recognised university degree program (such as a bachelor's degree) may be remunerated at the appropriate university rate.

The new rates of pay will be available shortly on the TBS Web site.

Please note that the rates of pay for students may be applied to Separate Employers as required.

All questions should be directed to your Departmental Corporate Labour Relations or Corporate Compensation Official who, if required, will direct their questions to the Compensation and Labour Relations group at the following email address:
