Allocation of Resources

How do funds flow?

Funding under the Agreement provides for monthly payments to SEAMO through Queen's University.

Funds are distributed to clinical departments in accordance with an annual budget approved by the SEAMO Governing Committee.

How are individual clinical teachers compensated?

Clinical teachers receive T4 and T4A income. This reflects their status as University employees for the purposes of educational activities and their status as self-employed individuals with regard to their clinical activities.

How is individual compensation determined?

Departments are funded by SEAMO, and the departments allocate resources to individuals. Compensation to individuals is determined on the basis of the system established through a collegial and democratic process.
