Challenging Work that Counts

At Finance Canada we provide leadership in helping the Government of Canada develop the economic and social policies that will improve the standard of living and quality of life of Canadians, their families and their communities. Our six policy branches provide unparalleled opportunities to work on issues like economic and fiscal forecasting, the federal budget, G-20 and G-7 meetings, federal transfers to the provinces and territories, tax policy, and financial sector regulation. We work on challenging policy issues, and you will have access to decision makers and be able to influence important public policy decisions.

A Collegial, Team-Oriented Work Environment

We are a dynamic organization that includes about 350 economists and policy analysts. Recruits work closely with colleagues within their teams, but also interact with others across the Department by working on crosscutting policy issues or by attending one of the numerous workshops, retreats and informal gatherings that take place throughout the year.

Diversity and Respect

We believe that diverse backgrounds, perspectives and approaches are essential to the development of the best public policies. As such, we encourage applications from Aboriginal people, women, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities.
