Careers at the CRA – 1. Why work with us


1. Why work with us

This year, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada.

At the CRA, our diverse workforce and inclusive workplace fosters innovation and drives us to be a world-class tax and benefit administration. High employee morale and engagement are the core of our agency. To make sure that our employees are heard, we listen to what they have to say, learn what’s important to them, and turn those findings into programs that make the CRA a welcoming and happy place to work.

We work together to create healthy workplaces by making efforts to ensure that people feel valued. Initiatives such as the Positive Space Initiative encourage employees to be their whole selves at work and create a safe and open-minded work environment for everyone.

With over 45,000+ employees across Canada, working at the CRA is like being a part of a community. Our employees are connected from coast to coast to coast, no matter the distance, with the many remote working options we offer. Offices across the country organize a variety of team-building activities to promote collaboration and co-ordinate charitable campaigns to encourage employees to give back to their communities.

The CRA offers retirement planning assistance and phased-in work options for employees nearing retirement. Retired employees have access to health and benefit plans. Helping our employees prepare and save for life after work supports a stress-free retirement for employees. We realize that life doesn’t always follow a 9 to 5 schedule, and at the CRA we want our employees to enjoy flexibility that fits their lifestyle: on and off the job. Our family-friendly policies such as flexible work arrangements and leave provisions help our employees integrate their personal and professional lives.

We offer a variety of apprenticeship and developmental programs for students and new graduates: all designed to offer hands-on work and educational experiences through term assignments. We have supportive networks and mentors, and offer a variety of training and learning programs to give employees the opportunity to strengthen their existing skills and learn new ones to excel in their career. As Canada’s tax program administrators, the work that our employees do touches the lives of all Canadians.

We are proud of all of our employees’ individual and collective efforts that make the CRA an employer of choice and remain committed to making the Agency a great place to work! Check out our current career opportunities today!
