The Code of integrity and professional conduct and the Directive on conflict of interest, gifts and hospitality, and post-employment are important documents that outline the expected standards of conduct for CRA employees. We strongly recommend that you take the time to review these documents before you consider an employment opportunity with the CRA. Please note that a conflict of interest arises whenever an employee’s private interests and/or outside activities impair, or could be perceived to impair, their ability to make decisions with integrity, impartiality, honesty, and in the best interests of the CRA and the Government of Canada.

Before submitting an application, potential applicants are asked to carefully review the requirements of this job opportunity to determine if they are eligible to apply.

Applicants can view the status of their application by logging into their Candidate profile on our Careers at the CRA site.

We will create a pool of eligible candidates for this staffing process.

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) and CRA’s interdepartmental staffing processes (open to CRA and federal public service employees). 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.
