PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE

Governor in Council appointment opportunities

On February 25, 2016, the Prime Minister announced a new approach for Governor in Council (GIC) appointments to more than 1 500 positions in commissions, boards, Crown corporations, agencies and tribunals across Canada. Under this new approach, open, transparent and merit-based selection processes will support the Government of Canada’s commitment to help ensure gender parity and that Indigenous Canadians and minority groups are better reflected in positions of leadership, as ministers make appointment recommendations for positions within their portfolios. Details on the new process are outlined on the GIC Appointments Web site (www.appointments.gc.ca).

Canadians can apply online for all GIC positions through the GIC Appointments Web site. Current and ongoing opportunities will be posted there and will provide information on how candidates may submit their applications online. You are encouraged to visit the Web site on a regular basis to learn of new opportunities that may be of interest to you as well as register and create your account for GIC appointment applications (http://appointments.gc.ca/lgn.asp?lang=eng). Once the account has been created, you will then be able to apply to opportunities when they are posted on the GIC Appointments Web site.
