Disclosure of Position Reclassifications

The Proactive Disclosure of Position Reclassifications for the Department of Finance Canada is available exclusively on Canada's Open Government Portal.

The rules and principles governing the reclassification of occupied positions are outlined in the Guidelines on Reclassification. These guidelines provide Deputy Heads with a framework within which to exercise their delegated classification authority for the reclassification of existing positions.

Some of the reasons that the duties of a position change resulting in a reclassification of the position may include:

Reclassification of occupied positions in the Public Service of Canada is an important and necessary business management option. However, when contemplating changes to a position that may result in reclassification, management must endeavour to ensure the proper, effective and efficient use of public money. The cost implication associated with upward reclassification must be known, transparent and support accountability for classification decisions.

Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear on this web site.
