Work Status Declaration

York University welcomes applications from all qualified Canadian and non-Canadian applicants regardless of whether you are currently authorized to work in Canada. The employment of foreign academics is governed by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, Immigration Refugees & Citizenship Canada, and Employment and Social Development Canada. 

During the application process, you will be asked about your current eligibility to work in Canada (e.g., as a citizen or permanent resident, through a work permit). This information is a mandatory part of the application for tenure-track and contractually-limited faculty appointments. No application will be considered without it. 

If applying online, these questions will be incorporated into the application. No further action is needed. In other cases or to preview the questions, download the forms below.
