For those who have received their contracts already, has there been any mention of relocation allowance?

Yes, it was included in my letter of offer. There was also a contact for the relocation advisor in my department I had to email. I was set up with Brookfield (BGRS) within 2 hours of signing my letter of offer.

I am flying out there next week to find a place for August! I will let you know how it goes. Doesn't seem to be a lot moving right now which is a little concerning for me

Anyone have experience with the federal government dress codes? Is a suit and tie always required?

Every department varies — always a good idea to start with a suit the first day and see how everyone else dresses.

For those who got offers, congrats. There's a Reddit for public servants /r/CanadaPublicServants if you guys got other general work questions btw.

Thanks,
Apply to post secondary recruitment (PSR) programs through jobs.gc.ca
the FORD program is a specialized program, apply to that as well (i think a PSR application is required)

Hello! Do you have any feedback in terms of grade ( B+ or A ) How much emphasis is put on grades or as long as you meet the requirement stated on application you are fine! Thank you so much for your help!
