Corporate Secretary for the Agency
“The CRA has empowered me to innovate, take risks, and put people first.”
Read Louise’s testimonial
I joined the CRA in 2003 after 13 years in the private sector because I wanted to experience the public service. Eighteen years later, it continues to be an amazing experience! The CRA has been a wonderful employer that has supported both my personal and professional development. The opportunities are endless – from finance and administration to human resources to program administration to operations, I have experienced it all.
As an executive, I truly appreciate this confidence. Each day, I feel that I am a valued contributor to the CRA’s success and that is what keeps me with the organization.

Read Sonia’s testimonial
When I reflect on why I am thriving at the CRA, I think of three reasons: the CRA offers me incredible opportunities to lead meaningful projects and innovate in leadership and learning; the CRA is forward-looking and enables my team to be creative and strive for excellence; and our people care.
The sense of belonging is palpable at the CRA. Our mission to administer tax, benefits, and related programs to Canadians is something I and every single employee contribute to deliver every day.
“My work allows me to see the bigger picture, especially in my interactions with more senior executives and the Minister’s Office, industry associations, other federal departments and provincial governments.”
Read Priceela’s testimonial
I joined the CRA as a director in audit after working on tax legislation at the Department of Finance Canada. This change gave me valuable perspective on how the laws we develop come to life, and it also drew perfectly on my background as a lawyer. Now, as an executive in business returns processing, I am furthering my knowledge of tax administration, from frontline work to program development to systems design.
My work allows me to see the bigger picture, especially in my interactions with more senior executives and the Minister’s Office, industry associations, other federal departments and provincial governments. The CRA has a strong EX network and continues to lead the way with its character leadership framework for executive development.
As an EX Champion, I can spend time on issues that matter to me, like mental health, mentoring, diversity and inclusion. With so many opportunities in just five years at the CRA, I am confident that this is the place where I can continue to grow for years to come.
“For me, the CRA offers growth and fulfilment opportunities unlike any other federal department or agency.”

My work is complex and challenging, yet enjoyable and rewarding. Because it has so many different fields to work in, the CRA offers unique prospects for me to expand my horizons and explore different interests in a highly supportive and professional environment. I really see putting people first in action at the CRA.
