What gratuity (tip) amounts are eligible for reimbursement?
My placement is in Kenora and it would be cheaper to fly to Winnipeg and then bus to Kenora. Is this allowed and are the expenses eligible for reimbursement?
Yes. Learners are expected to use the most economical options when traveling to their placement community – so if you find a cheaper option which involves you traveling out of Ontario, this is allowed and your expenses will still be eligible for reimbursement.
I’m experiencing a problem with/on my placement. Who can I contact for assistance?
If you are experiencing a problem during your placement, first try to discuss the problem with your preceptor. If the problem does not improve, or if you feel uncomfortable bringing it up with your preceptor you can contact Hailey Masiero, Community Relations Coordinator for assistance at email@example.com or at 705-622-7172.
Where do I get my mail sent while I’m on placement?
Mail should be sent to your accommodations address. If you are staying on the Lakehead University campus in Thunder Bay or the Laurentian University campus in Sudbury then your mail should be sent to the university’s residence address.
How long do I have to submit my travel claim for reimbursement?
Travel Claims must be submitted within 3 months (90 days) of the end of your placement. If your claim is not submitted within this time frame then your expenses may not be reimbursed.
