♦ What is an inventory? When you apply to an inventory, you are not applying for a specific position. Rather, you are applying for current or future job opportunities. Managers may use the inventory to fill their available positions.
If we select your application for further consideration, we will contact you for a test and/or an interview. We will notify you by email if you are selected for further assessment. Please ensure that your contact information is always up to date.
We will accept applications until the closing date. However, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible because we will select applications from the inventory as positions become available.
♦ Give yourself the best chance to succeed! We strive to provide an inclusive and barrier-free work environment, starting with the hiring process. If you have special assessment needs, we want to make sure that you have the support you need to showcase your abilities.
If we contact you for a test or interview, let us know if you need accommodation measures. This information will be kept confidential.
For more information, please consult the link above: Assessment Accommodation.

Some jobs are only available to people in these groups. If you want to be considered for these opportunities, you need to self-declare.

Conditions of employment

The Public Service of Canada is committed to building a skilled and diverse workforce that reflects the Canadians we serve. We promote employment equity and encourage you to indicate if you belong to one of the designated groups when you apply.
In this process, we are using the terms “Indigenous Peoples” and “Racialized communities” as they align with international usage and in this process replace the legislative terms “Aboriginal peoples” and “Visible minorities’’ that appear in the Employment Equity Act and the Employment Equity Regulations. The definitions have not changed.
NOTE: The employment equity definitions are for the four groups: Aboriginal, Persons with a disability, visible minorities and women.
Preference will be given to veterans and to Canadian citizens, in that order, with the exception of a job located in Nunavut, where Nunavut Inuit will be appointed first.
