Governor in Council (GIC) Appointments

What is a Governor in Council Appointment?

A Governor in Council (GIC) appointment is one made by the Governor General, on the advice of the Queen’s Privy Council of Canada (i.e., the Cabinet). The appointments are made through an Order in Council (OIC) and range from heads of agencies and chief executive officers of Crown corporations to members of quasi-judicial tribunals.

To apply for GIC opportunity, you’ll need to create a GIC account online. Once you’ve created your account, you’ll be able to apply to opportunities when they’re posted online.
