What do you need to do?

  • Notify your manager in writing with a copy to Human Resources (hr@mta.ca) of your intention to retire.  For unionized employees, please consult your collective agreement for the required notice period.  Non-bargaining employees are asked to provide a minimum of four months' notice.
  • If you are moving, inform Human Resources of your new address.
  • Turn in any building keys and your staff ID card to your supervisor on your last working day.

What happens next?

  • Within one month of receipt of your retirement notice, the Payroll and Benefits Supervisor will send you a Retirement Summary containing information about pension, vacation and benefits.
  • The Payroll and Benefits Supervisor will meet you to review the Retirement Summary and to provide information on pension options.
  • Within five business days of the end of the pay period in which you retire, Human Resources will e-mail your Record of Employment to you.
