Veterans’ Hiring Act (VHA)
The VHA allows current and honourably released former Canadian Forces (CF) members to continue serving Canadians by granting them access to employment opportunities within the federal public service. In order to be considered, these current and former CF members must have at least three years of service and must not already be permanently employed in the CRA or federal public service.
In support of the VHA, the CRA has committed to allowing members and former members of the Canadian Forces access to apply on internal CRA staffing processes (open to CRA employees only). As a result, internal CRA job opportunities are posted on CRA’s external Careers website for this purpose.
Members and honourably released former members of the Canadian Forces applying to this staffing process are required to include the details of the Member’s Personnel Record Resume (MPRR) or other official documents or pieces of identification (for example, a copy of their release letter), which are documents issued by the Department of National Defence (DND) with their application to confirm their eligibility to apply.
If the current or former Canadian Forces member does not have a MPRR, he or she may contact Department of National Defence’s Director of Casualty Support Management (DCSM) at 1(800) 883-6094 or [email protected] for a copy of their MPRR or other official documents. For information on requesting a determination regarding status as a medically-released veteran, visit Veterans Affairs Canada.
Before appointments are made from this staffing process, priority for appointment will be given to individuals with CRA preferred status. Members of the Canadian Forces released for medical reasons attributable to service will be given priority for appointment before all other individuals with CRA preferred status. Priority for appointment will be in the following order:
1. Members of the Canadian Forces released for medical reasons attributable to service with preferred status.
2. Individuals with either CRA surplus preferred status or CRA lay-off preferred status who live and/or work within the general rule of minimum distance of the position.
3. All other individuals with CRA preferred status who live and/or work within the general rule of minimum distance of the position.
If Employment Equity is used as a staffing requirement to appoint from this staffing process, all candidates and all individuals with preferred status will have to meet the staffing requirements identified on this NOJO in order to be considered for appointment.
