The Information Technology Apprenticeship Program (ITAP) is an exciting recruitment program, targeting recently graduated post-secondary students from a diploma or degree program in computer science, information technology, and/or information management or another specialty relevant to the position to be staffed. Documentation confirming graduation during a specified period is required. There are two streams. For the first stream, the graduation period is within the last 24 months. For the second stream, the graduation period is within the last 60 months and candidates must possess one year of IT experience. 

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has over 2000 IT professionals providing a wide range of mainframe and distributed processing technologies. Our computer systems process over 20 000 000 individual tax returns, 1 000 000 corporation returns, plus numerous employers, charities tax returns, GST and more. IT specialists in search of a professional challenge will surely find one within the CRA. 

This IT Apprenticeship Program is used to staff entry-level Computer Systems (CS-01) positions. Selected candidates benefit from a 12-month apprenticeship program under the direction of experienced staff. Upon successful completion of the program, candidates are appointed, with no further competition, to a CS-02 position. 

During the year CRA recruiters will be attending career fairs at selected post-secondary institutions across Canada. Be sure to ask our recruiters about this exciting IT career opportunity. 

The next staffing process will be posted in January 2018.
