    After you've uploaded your documents, you can submit your application. We'll email you a confirmation that we received your application.

    Candidates are short-listed two weeks or less after the close of the competition, and are contacted shortly after. Due to the large volume of resumes we receive, only short-listed candidates are notified.

Testing and interviews

If you're short-listed for a position, we'll ask you to come to our office so we can meet you and learn more about your skills and experience. This part of the hiring process may involve tests for certain skills, abilities, and knowledge, as well as interviews. The tests you'll take depend on the position you're applying for.

To help you prepare, we'll make sure you know ahead of time which tests you'll be given. You can find sample skills tests, abilities tests, knowledge tests, and tips on preparing for each.

Criminal record checks

Some jobs require a criminal record check. The two types of criminal record checks that we do are specific to roles in which the employee will (a) have access to sensitive information or financial authority; or (b) work with vulnerable adults or children.

Prospective employees applying for jobs involving working with vulnerable adults and/or children are required by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General to undergo a criminal record check as a requirement under the Criminal Records Review Act. The Act does not concern itself with all offences but only those which are specified in it: see the list of relevant offenses in Schedule 1 related to working with children and in Schedule 1 and 3 related to working with vulnerable adults.
