Where can I find information about hiring undergraduate students (including wages)?

Salaries/stipends (not including benefits) for undergraduate students is discipline-specific and varies according to academic qualifications and specific job duties. For Tri-Council applications, it is imperative that you provide justification for salary/stipend amounts. Please consult your peers and department admins for typical amounts provided in your departments. Otherwise, for information on salary for graduate students, you may use the Human Resources Student Wages Webpage as a guide.

For a breakdown of benefit rates please refer to the Benefits Allocation Rates for Employee Payroll Costs. The current benefit rate for undergraduate student labourers is 9.25%.
