Jobs open to the public
- You have a preference for appointment after those with priority entitlements. This means you must be hired ahead of other Canadians and permanent residents, if you have applied and are found qualified for a job open to the public.
- Your preference is in effect for up to five years after you are honourably released, unless you are already employed permanently in the public service.
Jobs open to federal public servants
- You have mobility – i.e., you can apply to jobs open to federal public service employees.
- You can apply to internal jobs regardless of what is in the “Who can apply” section of the job advertisement, but you must meet employment equity criteria (Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities or women) if it’s included in that section.
- Your mobility is in effect for up to five years after you are honourably released, unless you are already permanently employed in the public service.
- Mobility does not provide you with a priority entitlement or a preference for appointment.
- You can request an informal discussion from the hiring organization to better understand the process and assessment results. When recourse applies, the notifications provide information you may need to submit a complaint.
