JACFA Faculty Guide

If you have questions about JACFA, your contract, hiring priority,
leaves of absence, and many other topics, the JACFA Faculty Guide is a
good place to start. We hope you will find it helpful and easier to read
than our collective agreement!

You can also read FNEEQ's Guide to Rights of Non-Permanent Teachers,
available in French or in English.
