At the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency), we hope that you will find a career that fits your strengths and talents and makes the most of your education and skills.

The Agency recruits people with a wide variety of professional, scientific, technical, specialized and administrative skills. The Agency is committed to building a skilled and diverse workforce that reflects Canadian society. We encourage Canadians of all backgrounds to apply for positions with the Agency.

The Agency’s headquarters is located in Ottawa, but employees also work out of six offices across the country in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Québec City, Halifax and St John’s. All locations play a leading role in conducting the federal impact assessment process in their region. Regional offices work with the Canadian Energy Regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission and Offshore Boards, and in cooperation with provinces and territories and Indigenous jurisdictions to ensure an efficient and timely impact assessment process. The regional offices ensure that these processes are accessible to the public by:

  • implementing the Impact Assessment Act and its regulations, including opportunities for public participation;
  • working with Indigenous groups during the impact assessment process to understand and address potential impacts of projects on Indigenous rights and traditional land uses;
  • providing information on the federal impact assessment process; and
  • serving as a point of contact with other federal agencies involved in federal impact assessment.
