A brief description of the minimum total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid employee or pay grade:

Our employees who are hired as students in paid internships or as research assistants have the lowest salaries. They are not covered by a collective agreement, but rather by a scale that comes from the Quebec Public Service and is increased each year. This scale is the one in effect on April 1, 2022. This hourly rate is increased by 6% for vacation. Since the lowest paid employee receives $15.36 + 6% (vacation) = $16.28 per hour, 100% of Université TÉLUQ employees receive a living wage.

COLLEGE 0 $15.39/hr is the lowest salary ($16.28 with vacation)
