No matter what ‘house’ you belong to, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) has various teams that we would love to use our ‘sorting hat’ to place you into.

A pool of partially qualified persons resulting from this process WILL be created and WILL be used to fill similar positions with linguistic profiles (Bilingual Imperative BBB/BBB and CBC/CBC) as well as tenures (please refer to Employment Tenure section of this poster) that may vary according to the position being staffed.

In order to continue creating a diverse workforce and to staff positions based on identified gaps, members of the following Employment Equity groups: Indigenous Persons, Visible Minorities and Persons with Disabilities are encouraged to self-identify and appointments from this stream may be used to fill similar positions with linguistic profiles of Bilingual Imperative BBB/BBB and CBC/CBC AND bilingual Non-Imperative* BBB/BBB and CBC/CBC.
* A non-imperative appointment means that the position can be staffed with a person who agrees to become bilingual through language training at government expense.

This pool may be used to staff similar positions in other organizations within the core public administration (http://www.psc-cfp.gc.ca/plcy-pltq/rfli-lirf/index-eng.htm).
