Thank you for your understanding.
The federal public service is seeking Indigenous peoples, including students and graduates, to build a public service that is more inclusive and representative of Canada’s reality.
Human Resources Advisor, Public Service Commission of Canada
“At first, I was perplexed about the idea of joining the public service, particularly because of the historic relationship between my community and the governments. But destiny decided otherwise. I am now in a position to give back to my community.”
Manager of Indigenous Career Navigators Program, Knowledge Circle for Indigenous Inclusion
“As the Manager of the Indigenous Career Navigators Program, I can either connect you with an Indigenous career navigator or personally help you find the tools and information you need to thrive in the public service, as well as provide you with career advice and guidance.”
Make sure you self-declare
Some public service jobs are only open to Indigenous peoples, so to be considered, you’ll need to self-declare when you apply. Self-declaring is voluntary, and you can choose how your information will be used, whether for statistical or selection purposes.
If you’re selected for a position, you will be asked to sign the Affirmation of Indigenous Identity Form before being appointed as part of the staffing process.
“Indigenous peoples” and “Aboriginal peoples” refer to people who are North American Indian or members of a First Nation, Métis or Inuit. North American Indians or members of a First Nation include treaty, status or registered Indians, as well as non-status and non-registered Indians. The term “Indigenous peoples” is used on this page and aligns with international usage. “Aboriginal peoples” is the legislative term that appears in the Employment Equity Act and the Employment Equity Regulations.
