Canadian Government Federal Jobs

Did you know that you can apply for Canadian government federal jobs if you have a Canadian work permit or are a Canadian citizen? Many Canadians work in federal government and many United States citizens who live near the border commute to and from Canada to work in federal jobs. Learn more about the requirements for these types of jobs and find out where to look for openings.


The Canadian government has positions located within the country as well as overseas opportunities, such as jobs in foreign embassies. Depending on the job you apply for, you either need to be a Canadian citizen living within the country or living abroad. Alternately, if you a non-Canadian citizen, then you can acquire a work permit that allows you to work in Canada. A work permit doesn't allow you to work in foreign countries, but you can apply and get hired for jobs in Canada.

If you are bilingual, then you may have a higher chance of being hired for a Canadian government federal job than someone who speaks only one language. This doesn't mean you need to speak French and English exclusively. Spanish, German and other major languages are a big plus, especially if you apply for a job overseas. Keep in mind that many federal agencies in Canada will require you to take and predominantly pass a foreign language written and oral test. If you are a bit rusty with your secondary language, the time to brush up is before you submit your application as well as while the application is being reviewed.
