Important messages

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.

Assessment accommodation

When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies that may arise in the listed locations. As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

PLEASE NOTE: For this selection process, our intention is to communicate with applicants by e-mail for screening/assessment purposes (including issuing screening results, and sending invitations for written tests and interviews).

You will be required to show how you demonstrate the essential qualifications (i.e. Education, Experience and/or Occupational Certification) for the initial screening through your resume, cover letter, and/or in answering online screening questions.

It is NOT sufficient to only state that the qualifications are met or to provide a listing of current or past responsibilities. Rather you must clearly demonstrate HOW, WHEN, and WHERE the qualification was met through substantiation by examples.

Please note that should you demonstrate an interest in multiple locations, you may be assessed at the Canadian Forces Base closest to your home residence. You will only be assessed once for this process and your results will be shared with other locations that you were interested in. Should no location be selected, you may be referred to the closest Canadian Forces Base to your home residence.

Information on your described skills, experience, etc. provided in screening questions should be supported by your resume. Failure to provide the above information in the format required may result in your application being rejected from the process.

Your résumé must clearly demonstrate how you meet the requirements.

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

All job applications must therefore be submitted through the site. Only online applications will be considered.

Work environment

The Department of National Defence (DND) is one of the largest federal government employers, offering over 70 different types of civilian career opportunities. DND's role is to provide services and support to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) in their operations and missions at home and abroad. As a civilian employee, you will be an essential part of the Defence Team. In this regard, the department fosters a work environment where employees have opportunities to grow, to learn, to progress in their careers and have job satisfaction over the long-term.

The Canadian Forces Health Services (CFHS) is the designated health care provider for Canada’s military personnel, delivering medical and dental services at military installations across Canada and overseas. Our mission is to deliver quality care and promote health protection to Canadian Forces personnel. We are a multi-disciplinary team that works together, guided by the best interests of those we serve. We support, promote and encourage the professional and personal development of our employees.

General Duty Medical Officer positions come with all the advantages of working in the Federal Public Service, including pension, health care benefits and dental care benefits. Normal working hours between 0700 and 1600 hrs Monday to Friday, with no shift-work.

Intent of the process

This inventory may be used to staff future full-time or part-time vacancies with various tenures (indeterminate, deployment, specified period, assignment, secondment).

Applicants who meet the essential qualifications will have their application included in the inventory for this ongoing selection process. As positions become available, the applicants meeting the initial screening requirements identified by the hiring manager may be contacted and referred for consideration. Please ensure that your information is updated and remains current in your PSRS Applicant Account.

Your application in this inventory will be active for 365 days. A notice that your application is about to expire will be posted to the My jobs menu of your account 20 days before the end of your active 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.
