All applicants who are new to the federal public service must provide proof of citizenship prior to their appointment. This is necessary for both temporary (specified period) and permanent (indeterminate) employment. Any of the three (3) documents would be accepted: 1. Birth Certificate, 2. Passport or 3.

How to obtain Canadian Citizenship Certificate: The citizenship certificate is provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. To learn about how to obtain the certificate, visit this link:
Note that there is a fee to receive this certificate and the displayed wait time for the production of the certificate may be several months, however; requiring proof of citizenship in order to obtain employment would be considered an urgent reason, significantly reducing the wait time.
OUTLINE OF STEPS DURING THE STAFFING PROCESS:
If you don’t already have an account with GC Jobs, please create one by visiting the following site and selecting “Create an Account”, https://www.canada.ca/en/public-service-commission/jobs/service/gc-jobs.html. It takes only a few minutes to set up an account.
Log in to your account and look at the available jobs. You can narrow down your search criteria by categories such as, organization, location, job title and expected salary.
You can apply to the job(s) that are of interest. You don’t need to complete your entire application at once, however; be sure to save your progress and be mindful of the closing date for the advertisement. Your application must be completed and submitted by the closing date. Even one minute past the closing time, the job will be delisted from the jobs site and you will not be able to apply. Be sure to answer all the questions in the screening questionnaire in as much detail as possible, respecting the maximum word limit indicated. Indicate not only that you meet the criteria, but how you meet the criteria, and provide concrete examples. Please note, that it is not sufficient to state that you meet the required qualifications, or to list your current qualifications. If you do not provide sufficient examples and details, your application may be rejected because the assessment committee will not have the necessary information to determine whether you meet the qualifications or not. Your résumé will only be used to confirm your employment history and will not be used to complete your answers to the screening and text questions. You will also need to provide references that will allow us to validate the information you provide for each of the essential and asset qualifications listed for screening purposes.
Once you submit your application, log into your GC Jobs account for updates on the staffing process. Keep an eye out on your email as that will be the method of communication with all candidates. Only candidates that meet the screening criteria will be contacted to proceed to the next step of the selection process.
The next step is the written exam or interview (as applicable). You will receive an explanation of what will be assessed and when to make yourself available. You will need to accept the invitation by the date indicated in the email. No further consideration will be given to your application should you not accept the invitation. At this time, we may ask you to provide references, proof of citizenship and proof that you meet the educational requirement associated with the position. This can mean a copy of your diploma, degree and/or official transcripts.
Candidates who are successful may be notified that they are placed in a partially or fully qualified pool of candidates. If necessary, we will contact you to arrange language testing depending on the linguistic requirements of the position being staffed.
A hiring manager may contact you about vacancies as they become available.
Persons are entitled to participate in the appointment process in the official language of their choice. Applicants are asked to indicate their preferred official language in their application.
A top down approach may be used to assess and/or appoint candidates.
Depending on the requirements of the position(s) being staffed from this process, for current or future vacancies, any or all of the asset qualifications, operational requirements, and organizational needs may be applied at the time of staffing.
On October 6, 2021, the Government of Canada announced details of its plan to require vaccination across the federal public service. As per the new policy on COVID-19 vaccinations for the Core Public Administration including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, federal public servants in the Core Public Administration and members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police 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.
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.
