Pay Notes

  1. The pay increment period for all employees paid in the AC-1 to AC-3 scales of rates is twelve (12) months.
  2. AC-1 Pay Scale: Subject to notes (a) to (f) below, AC-1 employees are paid at the appropriate rate in relation to the number of courses and years of experience acquired.
    **
    1. The AC-1 pay notes are effective retroactively to October 1, 2011 for all employees.
    2. In addition to the periodic pay increment in note (1), a further increment for each course passed will be awarded effective January 1st or July 1st for courses taken prior to these dates and prescribed by the Society of Actuaries (SOA) or the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). The SOA seventh (7th) and ninth (9th) course is respectively the Seminar and the Professional Development. Future reference to the SOA includes CAS.
    3. If the employee obtains three (3) courses without having reached the fifth (5th) increment, the employee will then advance to the fifth (5th) increment and will be awarded one (1) additional increment for each course over three (3). At the discretion of the Employer, a new hired AC-1 could be awarded additional increments for years of experience acquired.
    4. If the employee obtains six (6) courses without having reached the eleventh (11th) increment, the employee will then advance to the eleventh (11th) increment and will be awarded one (1) additional increment for each course over six (6). At the discretion of the Employer, a new hired AC-1 could be awarded additional increments for years of experience acquired.
    5. Progression through the AC-1 pay scales will continue unhindered until the employee has reached the sixth (6th) increment, then advancement beyond the sixth (6th) increment is dependent on the employee having obtained three (3) courses.
    6. Advancement beyond the twelfth (12th) increment is dependent on the employee having obtained six (6) courses, or having been an associate of the Society of Actuaries with at least fifteen (15) years of consecutive service and acquired expertise in the actuarial field with the Government of Canada.
