The training & development allowance is a supplement to the UFV in-service professional development fund, and can be used for approved professional development activities. As a permanent employee of UFV, you have access to a training and development allowance which will be prorated to the full-time equivalent of your employment contract.
You can submit one claim (per fiscal) for:
- Internet connection fees
- Computer purchases (once every three years)
- Approved research expenses eligible under UFV guidelines for non-in-service professional development
If you submit a claim for the reimbursement for the purchase of a computer, you will be confirming the computer is for your use and it is the property of UFV for three years as per Canada Revenue Guidelines for this non-taxable benefit.
