Sabbatical Leave 2022


The Sabbatical Leave Committee, which is a committee of the Finance & Extension Board, is presently inviting requests for sabbatical leave from ministry personnel for 2022.

If this is in your plans, please contact Renate Sutherland, Chair of Sabbatical Leave 514-695-1970 (email) and/or submit a preliminary proposal to the Sabbatical Leave Committee by June 1, 2021. ***NOTE: Deadline has been extended to August 1, 2021***.

This preliminary proposal should include a plan, the reasons for requesting sabbatical leave, time-lines and a draft budget. It is advisable that interested candidates will have already approached key persons of their employing units. The Committee will review all preliminary proposals and meet virtually on Zoom with candidates before the end of August 2021.

The selected candidates will be invited to submit a more detailed proposal, including a final budget, in person at a second meeting of the Committee in October 2021. A representative from the Nakonha:ka Regional Council’s Pastoral Relations Committee will also be present at that meeting. Candidates should be accompanied by representatives of their employing units. The Committee will notify successful applicants before the end of 2021. The time-line is being adhered to in order to allow the Committee and successful candidate(s) sufficient time to make the necessary arrangements with the employing unit(s) to find replacement personnel and finalize personal details.

Joint Sabbatical Leave Committee:
Renate Sutherland, Chair
Rev. Maurice Nerny
Diane Campbell
Brian Ruse, Finance & Office Administrator
