In the event that the PhD Hiring Allowance is no longer payable, or if the employee is not receiving a PhD Hiring Allowance, the employee may become eligible for a performance bonus for "exceeding expectations" in accordance with Bank policy, which would be payable following the performance year and pro-rated when the period of evaluation is less than one year.

The Bank of Canada is committed to employee growth and development and supports employees in reaching their full potential within their roles. As part of the career path in this position, it is possible to progress to a role with an expanded scope at a higher job grade, and a corresponding salary increase, if specific criteria are met.
