Assessment accommodation

When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies. As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

An inventory is a selection process that is available to be used by various hiring managers to fill current and future needs at Transport Canada, Quebec Region. Candidates are randomly selected and referred by the Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS) based on numerous factors, such as candidates' responses to the screening questions, the work location or other criteria of the position being staffed. You only need to apply once to be considered for multiple job opportunities!

Failure to do so could result in the application being rejected from the process.
