About the job

On October 6, 2021, the Government of Canada announced details of its plans to require vaccination across the federal public service. As a separate and large federal employer, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) supports and will follow this new policy direction.

As of November 8, 2021, all employees of the CRA, including new hires, are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 unless accommodated based on a medical contraindication, religion, or another prohibited ground for discrimination as defined under the Canadian Human Rights Act and attest to their vaccination status.

The requirement to be fully vaccinated applies to all employees and new hires, whether they are teleworking, working remotely or working on-site. This condition of employment applies to indeterminate (permanent), determinate (term), and student hiring. Should you reach the point in the staffing process where it is necessary to verify conditions of employment, there will be a requirement to complete an attestation of vaccination status.

CRA prioritizes diversity and inclusion and is firmly committed to providing a diverse workforce that reflects the population we serve.  CRA’s National Employment Equity (EE) Staffing Strategy strives to eliminate EE gaps for the four EE designated groups: Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and women. Where an EE gap exists at the time of appointment, EE may be used as an appointment criterion for permanent and temporary appointments/staffing actions over six months made through this process.

Come work for the CRA, one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada!

We are currently looking for talented individuals to fill a variety of exciting and challenging positions in various areas with the Canada Revenue Agency. The job duties will vary depending on the position.

We take great pride in having a diverse workforce with wide-ranging skill sets. We provide students with variety, mobility, flexibility, and continuous learning and also offer career advancement opportunities through meaningful and valuable work.

If this interests you, we encourage you to apply!
