Employee Benefits

Financial Assistance for Computer/Peripherals Purchase

The University will provide financial assistance to full-time Faculty, Contract Academic Staff who hold Standing Appointments and/or Two Year Renewable Appointments, or full-time or part-time staff with continuing appointments for any computer, software, and/or computer peripherals purchase, within the price range of $500-$5000. This program will be limited to one purchase per employee every twenty-four (24) months.  Peripheral devices such as printers, scanners, digital cameras, iPods and software will be eligible for financing only if purchased at the same time as the computer system.

Eligible employees must purchase the computer, software, and/or computer peripherals through the University’s Bookstore TechShop / Brantford Hub.

Financial Assistance will be reflected as a taxable benefit on your annual T4 at year end.

Once the request has been received in HR, you will receive a signed approval form in approximately 3 business days.  The approval form can be taken to the Bookstore/Tech Shop for your computer purchase.
