What you will do

There are literally hundreds of diverse work experiences available in the federal public service and many more. Whatever your passion or interest, we may have what you’re looking for.

Possibility of part-time re-hire during the academic year

• who are registered full-time in a recognized institution (high school, CEGEP, college and university);
• who are returning to full time studies in the next academic year; and
• who meet the minimum age requirement in the province or territory of work.

If this student job opportunity interests you, submit your application indicating the following:

Employment equity self-declaration: Aboriginal person
