When you apply to an inventory you are submitting only one job application for the opportunity to be considered for various positions across the Strategy, Risk & Governance (SRG) Sector. You are not applying for one specific position, but to an inventory of applicants to be considered for current and future vacancies. As positions become available, applicants who meet the criteria selected for assessment will be assessed further.

A flexible work arrangement can be established to allow for a combination of telework (work from home or a remote location within Canada outside of the traditional office) and onsite office work (the designated worksite or another OSFI office). While there is flexibility to report to an OSFI office (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver) that is closest to your regular telework location, you may also be required to report into and work onsite from your designated worksite from time to time at management’s request.
