AAFC is proud to have established three national inventories from which we staff a variety of positions. These inventories are used by managers across the country to find candidates to fill their positions.
General Inventory: The general inventory is open to any and all interested candidates regardless of level of degree, experience, language ability and location. To apply to the General Inventory, please visit our recruitment platform. If you have any questions, please contact us at aafc.Vidcruiter.firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Indigenous Student Recruitment Initiative offers Indigenous students work experience that allows for personal growth while contributing to the goals of the department.

Professional Development and Apprenticeship Programs provide a structured learning approach to employee development. They consist of formal training, coaching, and developmental assignments within a defined learning framework. They are an effective strategy to attract, retain, and develop employees.
There are currently 5 development programs at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada:
The Human Resources Development Program is designed for HR employees working in PE01-02 and AS02-03 positions to acquire experience and develop their HR competencies.
As part of Financial Community Development, a Financial Officer Development Program is available to FI-01s in the department. This is a professional development and apprenticeship program that focuses on learning and development opportunities. It provides participants with the experience and knowledge necessary in order to attain the skills and competencies required to perform at the FI-02 level.
The Administrative Recruitment and Development Program is designed to bring structure and consistency to the training and development of administrative professionals.
The Commerce Officer Development Program is a professional development program for commerce officers in Programs and Market and Industry Services Branches at the CO-Development (CO-00) and (CO-01) levels. The ultimate objective is to develop a strong commerce officer workforce to work closely with industry to foster a competitive agriculture and agri-food sector.
Recruitment campaigns for these programs are done through GCJobs. If any of them interest you, make sure to set up notifications through GC Jobs to receive email alerts for new campaigns.
