University of Toronto ends mandatory retirement for librarians and profs

The University of Toronto is reported to have reached a tentative deal with the university's faculty association under which professors and librarians wishing to work past 65 will be able to phase-in or postpone retirement starting July 1, 2006.

The Ontario government is planning on introducing legislation soon that scraps mandatory retirement, something human rights activists have been pushing for many years.

Other provinces and territories that have banned mandatory retirement include Manitoba, Quebec, Alberta, Prince Edward Island, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.
