Does the institution offer a telecommute program for employees?:
Yes

A brief description of the program:

The university makes telecommuting arrangements or arrangements to work from a different location on a case-by-case basis. These arrangements have been put into place for both academic and support staff. The arrangements are negotiated between the manager and the staff member to meet the needs of both the institution and the employee; and assistance is provided with benefits and other necessary arrangements (e.g. Workers Compensation Board requirements). Examples include support staff such as medical transcriptionists and academic staff such as faculty and management staff.
