On this page you will find the forms for the Voluntary Separation Incentive Program (VSIP). Please take the time to review these forms in their entirety before signing and submitting them. We strongly encourage all who are considering this program to review these documents with the tax, financial or other advisors of their choosing.
VSIP Notice of Interest

This form marks the first step in the VSIP process and should be submitted during the application period which begins on September 20, 2021 and ends on October 29, 2021.
