⯈ACCOMMODATION MEASURES⯇

We are committed to providing an inclusive and barrier-free work environment, starting with the hiring process. If you need to be accommodated during any phase of the evaluation process, please use the Contact information below to request specialized accommodation. All information received in relation to accommodation will be kept confidential.

⯈VACCINATION⯇

On October 6, 2021, the Government of Canada announced details (https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/news/2021/10/backgrounder-covid-19-vaccine-requirement-for-the-federal-workforce.html) of its plans to require vaccination across the federal public service.

As per the new Policy on COVID-19 Vaccination for the Core Public Administration Including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (https://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/pol/doc-eng.aspx?id=32694), federal public servants in the Core Public Administration and members of the RCMP must attest to their vaccination status. The requirement for employees to be fully vaccinated applies whether they are teleworking, working remotely or working on-site. This is a condition of employment and it applies to indeterminate (permanent), determinate (term), casual, and student hiring. Should you reach the point in the selection process where it is necessary to verify terms and conditions of employment then the hiring manager or a human resources representative will contact you in order to complete an attestation.

⯈CONFLICT OF INTEREST - REGULATED CANADIAN IMMIGRATION CONSULTANTS (RCICS)⯇

To avoid situations of conflict of interest and conflict of duties with the goal of upholding the values and ethics of the public sector and the public interest, applicants providing immigration consulting services (both registered and unregistered, paid and/or unpaid), would be required to recuse themselves from these duties for the duration of their employment, should they be appointed to a position within Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Moreover, prospective appointees who are Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) would be required to resign from the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants. Of note, a “leave of absence” from the College does not meet IRCC’s requirement in the matter.

⯈SELECTION DECISION⯇

The selection decision(s) may be based on one or more of the following criteria:
• Matching of the individual's experience or qualifications to the strengths and weaknesses of the work team;
• Matching of the individual's experience or qualifications to the specific duties of the position being staffed;
• Depth, breadth, type of work-specific experience;
• Level/degree of one or more qualifications;
• Other key factors considered by management for the right fit between candidates and the job to be filled out.

⯈⯑FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)⯑⯇

Q. Can I send my application to the email address provided on the job advertisement?
A. No, all applications must be submitted online through the Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS). Applications submitted by email will not be accepted or considered.

Q. What happens if I experience any technical issues with the GC Jobs website?
A. Should you experience any technical issues with the GC Jobs website, please contact 1-888-780-4444 (toll-free) or 1-800-465-7735 (TTY/TDD).

Q. What happens if I have a disability that prevents me from applying online?
A. Persons with disabilities preventing them from applying online are asked to contact 1-800-645-5605 (toll-free).

Q. What happens if my contact information changes?
A. It is the candidate's responsibility to keep their personal and contact information up to date, as well as any other information relevant to their application. Please ensure that the email address provided is valid, functional at all times and accepts messages from unknown users.

Q. What happens if my application is expired?
A. Your application to this inventory will be active for 90 days. A notice that your application is about to expire will be posted to the My jobs menu of your account 14 days before the end of this 90 day period. If you do not take action, your application will no longer be active and therefore no longer considered for this inventory. Should your application become inactive while the process is still open, a notice will be posted to your account indicating that your application has expired; you may select the link Update my Inventory Status to reaffirm your interest.

Q. Why was my application automatically “screened-out“ when I submitted it?
A. In order to be “included in the inventory“ you must meet all the essential qualifications when submitting your application. Should you receive a "screened-out" message immediately after submitting your application, you have likely responded 'No' to a screening question assessing an essential qualification. If you incorrectly responded 'No' to a qualification you do in fact possess, simply retrieve your application and update your response to the screening question.

Q. What does it mean to be “included in inventory“?
A. When submitting your application, your status may be: Results available: included in inventory. This system-generated message that refers only to your application having been successfully submitted to the inventory.

Q. What does it mean when I receive a notification from PSRS stating that I have been screened-out/permanently eliminated from an inventory?
A. CINI - Human Resources Team may remove your name from the PSRS for volume-management purposes and you may receive a notification stating that you have been screened-out.

Your name may be removed permanently from the PSRS for one of the following reasons:
- You have been found qualified and do not need to undergo any of the assessments again.
- You have been exposed to the evaluation tools and have failed to meet the essential qualifications. Therefore, your application will no longer be considered as part of the selection process.

Q. Some advertisements state that random selection may be used to identify which applicants will be assessed during the appointment process. What is random selection?
A. Random selection is a strategy that is sometimes used to manage applicant volume. It identifies a sub-sample of applicants by applying the element of chance at some point during the appointment process, using criteria identified by the hiring organization.

Q. How is this sub-sample of applicants determined?
A. To determine the sub-sample of applicants, the hiring organization identifies the following:
- criteria that candidates must meet; and
- the number of candidates to be selected.

With the assistance of an electronic system that contains information on all applicants, candidates who meet these criteria are identified and the sub-sample is randomly selected from that group. The Public Service Resourcing System - the electronic system used to advertise job opportunities within the Public Service of Canada, and receive and select applications - performs the random selection function.

Preference

Preference will be given to veterans first and then to Canadian citizens and permanent residents, with the exception of a job located in Nunavut, where Nunavut Inuit will be appointed first.

Information on the preference to veterans

We thank all those who apply. Only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.
