Appointment opportunities

Welcome to our new website, we continue to improve the functionality of our site and welcome any feedback to help us achieve this objective. We welcome your suggestions and comments.

We know that our country is stronger - and our government more effective - when decision-makers reflect Canada’s diversity. The Government of Canada has implemented an appointment process that is transparent and merit-based, strives for gender parity, and seeks to ensure that Indigenous peoples and minority groups are properly represented in positions of leadership. We continue to search for Canadians who reflect the values that we all embrace: inclusion, honesty, fiscal prudence, and generosity of spirit. Together, we will build a government as diverse as Canada.

We are equally committed to providing a healthy workplace that supports everyone’s dignity, self-esteem and the ability to work to each team member's full potential. With this in mind, all appointees will be expected to take steps to promote and maintain a healthy, respectful and harassment-free work environment.

The Government of Canada is currently seeking applications from diverse and talented Canadians from across the country who are interested in the following appointment opportunities:
