As this inventory is only open to the above groups, you are required to self-declare in the job application process. In addition, the Aboriginal candidates proposed for appointment must complete and sign the Affirmation of Aboriginal Affiliation Form as a condition of appointment prior to or at the same time as the offer of appointment, even if they have already self-declared as an EE member when applying. For additional details, please consult: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-service-commission/services/appointment-framework/employment-equity-diversity/self-declaration-information.htmlWhen you submit your job application for this inventory, you are applying for various opportunities, not for a particular position.
