Pay for performance

Our compensation programs are competitive and designed to attract and retain the best talent—people like you—while giving flexibility to your manager to reward you based on your direct contribution to our strategy. Our pay for performance philosophy means we reward individual performance goals and behaviours as well as organizational and divisional achievements.

Being well

Well-being is at the forefront here because we care about our people and want everyone to succeed. Our benefits packages include mental health support. We also have a generous Employee Assistance Program and personal days designed to help you achieve balance. Year-round, our Employee Resource Group (ERG) are committed to shining a spotlight on mental and physical health. For example, our Women@Teachers' ERG hosts a special series featuring experts on women's health, with topics ranging from fertility to menopause.


Our benefits packages for full-time employees may differ based on region or employment status.
