Assessment accommodation

Work environment

Transport Canada is responsible for transportation policies and programs. We promote safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible transportation.

As an Administrative Support Assistant, you will be directly involved in the delivery of the iZEV program, including:

- Responding to requests for information
- Applying program guidelines when processing claims submitted by dealerships
- Finding solutions to routine problems
- Following up on documentation required for claim processing

• Merit criteria (qualifications for the position) are established with inclusion in mind

• Selection board members are diverse
• Selection board members are trained on unconscious bias via Canada School of Public Service COR120 - Inclusive Hiring Practices for a Diverse Workforce
