***For example, the best approach is to use each screening qualification as a heading, and provide a description outlining how that qualification is met. Failure to clearly demonstrate how you meet the screening criteria (education, essential experience and asset qualification) may result in the REJECTION OF YOUR APPLICATION.
****Candidates who are missing information or submit incomplete information could be screened out.

Please note that candidates (including persons employed in the Public Service) will not be considered to be in travel status or on government business and travel costs will not be reimbursed. Consequently, candidates will be responsible for travel costs.
** PLEASE ENSURE ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN YOUR WWW.JOBS.GC.CA PROFILE/ACCOUNT IS ACCURATE AND UP TO DATE.
**WE USE THE INFORMATION GENERATED BY THE SYSTEM FOR CONTACT AND SCREENING PURPOSES, NOT INFORMATION THAT IS FOUND ON YOUR RESUME/COVER LETTER.
