The Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner offers rewarding work in a dynamic environment.
It employs about 50 people in a range of specialties, including compliance, investigations, legal services, communications, parliamentary relations and corporate management.
The Office sometimes seeks candidates for indeterminate, term and student positions, and Interchange Canada assignments. When available, employment opportunities are also posted on
Government of Canada jobs and
Parliament of Canada jobs.
The Office of the Ethics and Commissioner is a separate employer whose employees are not part of the federal public administration. The Office has its own terms and conditions of employment relating to hours of work, employee benefits and general working conditions affecting employees, and they ensure that all reasonable measures are provided for employees’ safety and security.
The Office is committed to employment equity and having a diverse and inclusive workforce. Recognizing that accessibility for all employees, especially persons with disabilities, is a critical element of inclusion, the Office is taking action under the
Accessible Canada Act to eliminate barriers.
All Office employees are expected to adhere to the values—respect for people, professionalism, impartiality and integrity—set out in the Office's
Code of Values and Standards of Conduct.
The Office is not generally subject to legislation governing the administration of the public service or to Treasury Board policies and guidelines. However, resource management practices are, to the greatest extent possible, consistent with those found in the public service and in Parliament. The Office’s staffing processes and appointments are based on merit and free from political influence.
