Appointment opportunities

We know that our country is stronger — and our government more effective — when decision-makers reflect Canada’s diversity. The Government of Canada has implemented an appointment process that is transparent and merit-based, strives for gender parity, and ensures that Indigenous peoples and minority groups are properly represented in positions of leadership. We continue to search for Canadians who reflect the values that we all embrace: inclusion, honesty, fiscal prudence, and generosity of spirit. Together, we will build a government as diverse as Canada.

We are equally committed to providing a healthy workplace that supports one’s dignity, self-esteem and the ability to work to one’s full potential. With this in mind, all appointees will be expected to take steps to promote and maintain a healthy, respectful and harassment-free work environment.

The Government of Canada is currently seeking applications from diverse and talented Canadians from across the country who are interested in the following positions.

Targeted Regulatory Reviews — Request for stakeholder comments

Effective regulations promote social and economic well-being, protect health and safety, and foster innovation and a competitive business environment. In recent years, the Government of Canada has undertaken a number of initiatives to modernize the Canadian regulatory system and improve its performance for Canadians and businesses. Among those initiatives are the Targeted Regulatory Reviews, which examine regulation and regulatory practices to identify bottlenecks and opportunities to support economic growth and innovation, while continuing to prioritize health, safety, security, and environmental responsibilities.

The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) is currently coordinating a third round of Regulatory Reviews, which includes a Supply Chain Regulatory Review, announced in the 2022 Fall Economic Statement. This Supply Chain Regulatory Review will examine federal regulations and regulatory practices, with a view to better support the movement of commodities and goods in Canada and across the border.

Purpose for engagement call out

Consistent with previous rounds of Regulatory Reviews, TBS is seeking input from interested organizations and individuals to inform the Supply Chain Regulatory Review. Given the breadth of supply chains and associated regulations, TBS has identified three themes for this consultation:

While input is being sought specifically on these themes, other subjects may also be explored as this Regulatory Review unfolds. Interested organizations and individuals are invited to submit other input related to the regulatory framework and supply chains.

How to participate

Canadians can visit the Supply Chain Regulatory Review project web page on TBS’ Let’s Talk Federal Regulations engagement platform, and share their views by January 15, 2024.

TBS encourages contributors to share their input directly on this platform to increase the transparency of the consultation process. If contributors prefer to share their views by email, they may write to

For transparency, submissions received by email and the platform will be made public on the Government of Canada’s Open Data Portal in accordance with the Directive on Open Government. Contributors must inform TBS at the email address above of any aspect they wish to be kept confidential and any identifiers (e.g. organization name) to be removed before publication. Information received throughout this submission process is subject to the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act.

How input will be used

Following the closing of the consultation, the Government of Canada will develop a Supply Chain Regulatory Roadmap based on the comments received. Regulatory Roadmaps lay out plans to advance regulatory modernization in support of economic growth and innovation.

A summary of the responses received will also be posted on
