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 seeks to ensure 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 overarching goal of the Minister of Foreign Affairs is to establish Canadian leadership in the world and to advance Canada’s interests.
The Government of Canada is currently seeking applications from diverse and talented Canadians from across the country who are interested in the following positions:
The International Joint Commission (IJC) is a binational, independent, quasi-judicial organization established by the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 to prevent and resolve water related disputes along the boundary between Canada and the United States. The IJC is composed of three Canadian and three American Commissioners. Two of the Canadian Commissioners customarily serve on a part-time basis while a third Commissioner, selected as Chairperson, serves on a full-time basis and spends all, or a good part of each working week, at the Commission’s office in Ottawa. The Commissioners are supported by Secretariat offices in Ottawa and Washington and a binational Great Lakes Regional Office in Windsor. The IJC’s Canadian Section is under the portfolio responsibility of the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
The Commissioners have responsibility for preventing and resolving disputes between Canada and the United States of America concerning transboundary water and other environmental issues in a manner that serves the common good of both countries. The Commissioners are representatives of the IJC and not of the government that appoints them. Commissioners must work constructively with the other Canadian Commissioners, the U.S. Commissioners, and the U.S. and Canadian staff who serve the Commission. Canadian Commissioners generally hold office for a four-year term.
Pursuant to the IJC’s Rules of Procedure, the Commissioners of the Canadian Section of the IJC shall appoint one of their number to serve as Chairperson of the Canadian Section. The Chairperson shall act as Chairperson at all meetings of the Commission held in Canada and serve as the Deputy Head of the Canadian Section, accountable for its sound financial management and human resources.
Further details about the organization and its activities can be found on the International Joint Commission’s website.
Review of applications will begin on July 30, 2018. Candidates must apply online by via the Governor in Council Appointments website. Candidates are strongly encouraged to submit their applications by this date. After this date, your application will be retained and may be considered up until an appointment to the position is made. Your cover letter should be addressed to the Deputy Director of Selection Processes, Senior Personnel Secretariat, Privy Council Office, and should be sent only through the online application.
