Two important reports on the status of contract faculty in Canada
- The national report on precarious contract faculty from the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA). Of special interest are the figures released by MacEwan University to the researchers via FOIP. They indicate that MacEwan is among the 13 universities in Canada with 2/3 or more precarious contract faculty, at 67.4% in 2016-17. See Table 1 on Page 23 of the report accessible through the link provided above. We’ve written more about that here.
- The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) report. For a quick summary of the report, look here.
