How do I enrol?

The June 2017 EPass enrolment begins on May12 until May 22, 2017 and participants sign up for one full year.

 

  • New enrolments

New enrolments are asked to complete the online June 2017 EPass enrolment form, provide a *photo, and submit the information to your onsite coordinator.  

*Photos should be against a light blue or grey back-drop, close-up of head and shoulders only, good lighting, with dark clothing. Ask a colleague to take the photo! .jpg file format with minimum 300 dpi would be preferable.

  • Returning participants

Your onsite coordinator will issue the 2017 sticker after you submit your 2017 EPass enrolment form.

 

Who is eligible?

Full-time, part-time and contract employees can participate in the program.
