The Rotman Institute welcomes sabbatical or long-term visiting fellows to stay for a period of one academic term or year. These visitors may be eligible to receive a monthly stipend. Note that for long-term stays the purchase of the University Health Insurance Plan is mandatory; cost varies depending on the length of stay and family size. Please see the UHIP information page
for enrollment requirements, current premiums, and further details.
Long-term visitors from outside of Canada will receive guidance from Institute staff and Western’s Office of Faculty Relations to obtain a temporary Canadian work permit. Please note that in accordance with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) visitors are required to submit a letter from their home institution verifying that they hold a permanent appointment and will be returning following the end of their stay in Canada.
