Tenure-track Faculty Appointments:

Tenure-track appointments may be made at either the Provisional or the Candidacy level, according to qualifications [13.1.4]. If you have been offered an appointment as a Faculty
Member you should be aware that under article of the Collective Agreement those holding provisional appointments are entitled to have one teaching term free of assigned teaching duties during the two years of the appointment. This provides junior faculty with valuable time for research and publication, not available to those who hold a Candidacy Appointment. Once you have received a Candidacy Appointment, you must be considered for tenure by the Fall Term of your third year [15.3.1]. However, you may apply for tenure in any year of your Candidacy Appointment. If you are uncertain whether a Provisional or Candidacy Appointment best fits your qualifications and career expectations, consult WLUFA.
