Long Service Awards and Retirement Recognition

The University of Lethbridge recognizes that our people are our greatest asset and are critical to overall University success. Your effort, dedication, insights, and opinions are all extremely valuable to the successful undertakings of our organization. The University appreciates your continued dedicated efforts, and to that end, the U of L holds an Annual Long Service Awards and Retiree Recognition Ceremony, which is held in May, in the Student Union Ballrooms. All employees are welcome to attend the ceremony.


Preparations are underway for the 2019 Long-Service Awards and Retiree Recognition Ceremony being held on May 1, 2019, in the Student Union Ballrooms starting at 1:00 p.m.  All employees are invited to attend the ceremony. The Awards Ceremony is to recognize service for AUPE, APO & Faculty members.

Effective September 16, 2013, the University modified the calculations of continuous service (for the purpose of Long-Service Awards only). The ‘new’ calculations now include service from specific Salaried Term positions, and for Salaried positions where service was broken by periods of less than three (3) months in duration. Please see the ‘new’ ‘Calculation of Long Service Award’ rules on the Human Resource website, for more information on whether or not prior service should now be included in your Long-Service calculation.

The Long Service Awards recognize continuous service starting at 10 years, incrementing every 5 years, to 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years of service.

If you would like us to check into whether you have service that meets the ‘new’ criteria, please contact Susan at susan.roth@uleth.ca by January 2, 2019.  We will be happy to check our records and get back to you. 

Thank you for your assistance.
