From the Human Resources Department

Effective March 11, 2016 the following sections of the Human Resources Department will be relocating to 250 Bloor Street East. 
> Administration
> Employment Services (including Workforce Administration)
> Employee Relations
> Benefit Services
> Compensation Services
> Employee Development
> Occupational Health and Claims Management
> Policy Development

Our offices will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday. Visitors are encouraged to take transit as there is no TTC parking available. Paid parking lots are available in the vicinity.

The Uniforms Section will remain in the Support Services Building and Investigative Services will remain at 1900 Yonge St.

Phone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses will remain unchanged.

The following is a list of changes that may impact you and/or your staff:

Occupational Health and Claims Management

The Sick Benefit Claim drop box previously located at the northwest corner of the Inglis Building has been removed. Employees can submit their claim forms through interoffice mail to Human Resources – Sick Benefit Claims, or via Canada Post to 250 Bloor St. E., 11th Floor, Toronto, ON, M4W 1E6.

All appointments with a TTC Medical Consultant or a Disability Management Specialist will take place at 250 Bloor St. E., 11th floor.

All Friday Functional Assessments that took place at Occupational Health will now be held at Altum Health, our vendor’s site, located at the Toronto Western Hospital, 399 Bathurst St., Krembil 3-489. Employees will be informed of the new location when their appointment is booked by Occupational Health and Claims Management staff.

Employee Development

Most Employee Development Training classes will continue to be held at Hillcrest (1st floor and 3rd floor of the Inglis Building), however some classes will be held at our new location. Participants are required to check their training confirmation notice for the classroom location.

Employment Services, Workforce and Uniforms

Documentation for Transit Operator new hires and the supply and distribution of Uniforms will still take place at Hillcrest.

Job interviews for new Operator hires will take place at 250 Bloor St. E.

Employees submitting bid sheets for unionized postings are still required to submit original documents to Workforce Administration by either dropping them off at the new location or by sending them by interoffice mail. Bids may be received after the job bid closing date, however the bid sheets must be signed and dated by the employee and the employee’s Foreperson prior to the closing date.

All employee files will be moved to our new location. We will continue to mail or e-mail Confirmation of Employment letters, or they may be picked up at 250 Bloor St. E., 11th floor. Employees making appointments to view their employee file will be required to attend 250 Bloor St. E.
