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. As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

An inventory advertisement allows a continuous intake of applications, over as long a period as desired. Once a candidate has submitted their application it will stay active in the inventory (assuming it meets the essential screening criteria) for 180 days. At the end of that period, candidates will need to refresh their application to ensure it stays active in the inventory. 15 days prior to the end of the 180 day period, candidates will receive a notice to their PSRS profile instructing them that their application will expire unless it is refreshed. Candidates are also able to withdraw their application from the inventory anytime they desire. If you are found unsuccessful during any point of the process your application will not be considered again until 120 days has elapsed from the date of your elimination notification. After 120 days, you may submit a new application.

The application process includes screening questions that will be used as part of the assessment. You will be prompted to complete a self-assessment on some qualifications. We cannot make assumptions about your qualifications. It is important that candidates clearly demonstrate how and why they meet the qualifications, giving detailed examples for each element. As such, it is imperative that candidates adequately complete the screening questionnaire and manage their time accordingly.
