Policy Development & Review

Developing new policies

New university policies may be developed as required in accordance with the powers and duties of the Board of Governors, Senate, and the President as prescribed in the University Act, and in compliance with legislative and other legal requirements.

Policy review

In order to maintain the accuracy and relevance of university policies, regular policy reviews are required. These reviews assist in confirming the relevance, validity, and applicability of university policies. The policy review process is also used to recognize and incorporate required revisions, while determining the implications of such revisions. All university policies must undergo a substantive review every five years (or earlier if required).

To submit a request for a new policy, modification, or deletion of an existing policy, please complete the Policy Request Form, and submit it to the Lisa McMartin at We encourage submitting a request form at the beginning of the review process. The Office of University Secretariat is also available assist you with the development or review process. 

Information on key documents and templates, tips and tools as well as flow charts on how to get a policy revised, developed, and approved at UFV can be found on the policy resource and tools page.
