Vacation Calculator

This calculator is used for the purpose of determining an employee’s annual vacation entitlement in a given calendar year. Vacation entitlement is based upon an employee’s period of continuous service during the accrual period and the specific terms of their employment contract. Further information regarding the Vacation Time policy may be found on the Human Resources website.

Please note that this calculator is designed for employees who are enrolled in the University’s regular vacation plan; if you were offered a different vacation entitlement upon your hiring, please consult with your manager and/or your Human Resources Advisor.


Vacation Year
Calculations are based on December 31 of the year entered into this field.

Continuous Service Date (CSD)
The period during which an individual is employed by the University without a break in service as defined by the Employment Standards Act or the applicable collective agreement. Employment excluded from the scope of this policy is not considered continuous service (except for continuous employment as a postdoctoral fellow). To determine your continuous service date, please discuss with your supervisor for confirmation or contact your Human Resources Advisor.

Daily Hours
The standard number of hours worked per day (eg. 7, 7.5, 8).

Full Time Equivalent (FTE)
The percentage of time that you worked or will work during the accrual period (January 1 – December 31 of the Vacation Year indicated above).

Please indicate the number of months that you worked at the FTE indicated above. The total number of months submitted must equal 12.
