How to apply

Thank you for your interest in the University of the Fraser Valley. To submit an application, follow these steps:


Create a separate application for each posting/competition


  1. Your cover letter.
  1. Your résumé or curriculum vitae and your contact info.
  1. Any additional documents specified on the job posting.
  1. Where you saw the posting (e.g. UFV website, or an external job board such as University Affairs, LinkedIn, etc).

Clearly mark your application with the posting number

Each UFV job posting contains a unique posting number (e.g. #2016.xx). Clearly marking your application with this number ensures your documentation is received and assembled together for a Selection Advisory Committee's review. Please also provide the posting number to any references who may be submitting documentation to UFV on your behalf.

Note: Although Human Resources accepts 'general applications' for employment (i.e., not submitted for a specific job posting), we are unable to assess such applications for current or prospective opportunities. Instead, individuals should check UFV Careers site for updates for new opportunities of interest.


Submit your application

Email (preferred)

Email, unless otherwise specified on the job posting, and include the posting number in the subject line. Due to security reasons, UFV only accepts file attachments in the following formats: Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF. 

If you are an internal/bargaining unit applicant, please submit your application using your UFV email address.

After submitting your application, you will receive an automated email reply confirmation. We are unable to accept applications submitted via web/URL links - e.g., to online cloud storage or other sites. If you submit your application and don't receive an automated email response, please contact to ensure your application has been received.
