Engineers Canada has brought to our attention the following immediate opportunities. Individuals appointed by the Governor-in-Council (GIC) play an important role in Canada’s democracy by serving on commissions, boards, Crown corporations, agencies, and tribunals across the country. To maintain public confidence in government decision-making, the Government of Canada is committed to filling GIC positions with highly qualified candidates who reflect Canada’s diversity.
