Did anyone find out anything about private schools? I read the whole thread but didn’t see a definitive Answer. I have read most of the threads on pensions.
I’m married to an ROC citizen and I also have my APRC and work at a private school.
From what I’ve learned, there is separate legislation called the Private schools act which makes teachers not covered by the labour legislation.
My school’s HR and their lawyers informed me that they didn’t need to pay it. Apparently only teachers who are have a teaching certificate from the ROC qualify, or if you have any management duties.
I called the ministry of labour and they indeed told me that I was not covered. Apparently the pension issue is dealt with at a municipal level. To legally inquire, I was told that I would have to go to the local city hall and file a report. They told me my school would be informed and my name would be revealed to them…
I’ve heard similar things from a few others…
But the ROC teachers get the pension at my school which makes me confused. I thought an APRC makes me just like them for labor matters.
In conclusion, I’ve been told many times that I make a lot of money so I should just invest my own money.
I’ve also been told that unless I retire here I won’t get it so its basically throwing away the school’s money.
Any info would be helpful
