Important messages

We are committed to providing an inclusive and barrier-free work environment, starting with the hiring process. If you need to be accommodated during any phase of the evaluation process, please use the Contact information below to request special accommodation.

All information received in relation to accommodation will be kept confidential.

When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies.

As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

An inventory advertisement allows a continuous intake of applications, over as long a period as desired. This inventory has no closing date, although one may be added in the future.

Once a candidate has submitted their application it will stay active in the inventory (assuming it meets the essential screening criteria) for 180 days.

At the end of that period, candidates will need to refresh their application to ensure it stays active in the inventory.

15 days prior to the end of the 180 day period, candidates will receive a notice to their applicant profile instructing them that their application will expire unless it is refreshed.

Candidates are also able to withdraw their application from the inventory anytime they desire.

If you are found unsuccessful during any point of the process, your application will not be considered again until 60 days has elapsed from the date of your elimination notification.

After 60 days, you may submit a new application.

Since this process is being used to staff positions in British Columbia, it is important that you ONLY indicate your true locations of interest as well as fully complete all screening questions.
