Our Department has been named one of the 2013 top employers in the National Capital Region.
Now entering its eighth year, the National Capital Region's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of the Canada-wide Top 100 Employers competition. This special designation for the National Capital Region recognizes the Ottawa-area employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
National Capital Region employers are evaluated using eight criteria: work atmosphere & social; health, financial & family benefits; vacation & time off; employee communications; performance management; training & skills development; community involvement and physical workplace. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
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.
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.
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.
