Government of Canada seeks applicants for the Canada Employment Insurance Commission

Application process open for the positions of Commissioner for Workers and Commissioner for Employers

August 4, 2020              Ottawa, Ontario              Employment and Social Development Canada

The Government of Canada has launched the appointment process for the Canada Employment Insurance Commission (CEIC). The Government is currently seeking applications from diverse and talented Canadians for the positions of Commissioner for Workers and Commissioner for Employers.

The commissioners are responsible for representing the views and positions of organizations and individuals that are clients of, or affected by, Employment and Social Development Canada’s programs and services, particularly the Employment Insurance (EI) program.

The CEIC plays a leadership role, in collaboration with Employment and Social Development Canada, in overseeing the EI program. The CEIC has the legislated mandate to monitor and assess the program annually. For more than 75 years, this tripartite organization has included representation from business, labour and the Government of Canada.

The Government is committed to open, transparent and merit-based processes for selecting Governor in Council appointees. Appointees play a fundamental role in Canadian democracy as they serve on commissions, boards, Crown corporations, agencies and tribunals across the country.

Interested individuals are strongly encouraged to apply by August 19, 2020, via the Governor in Council Appointments website. The review of applications will begin on August 19. Applications received after this date will be retained and may be considered until an appointment to the position is made.
