What is GC Jobs Transformation?

As business owner for the current and future recruitment platform, the Public Service Commission (PSC) is responsible for the recruitment component of an end-to-end HR to pay solution and under the GC Jobs Transformation (GCJT) project the PSC is transforming the Government of Canada recruitment solution. Our system is outdated and no longer serves the needs of our users, particularly in a digital age. The new solution will be a flexible, modern, inclusive and user-centric to attract top talent to the Government of Canada now and in the future.

This is a multi- year project which will use a phased approach - where there will be constant evolution based on consultations and feedback.


In 2017-2018 PSC engaged job seekers, hiring managers and HR professionals to tell us their needs through the New Direction in Staffing Interface (NDSi). Through this process, we have learned that there is a need to make the recruitment experience more simplified, seamless and intuitive – that the user needs should be the first considerations.

Building on the NDSi, the PSC is moving to the next phase, through GC Jobs Transformation, of exploring system options to meet the needs of stakeholders. There are several key requirements that still need to be captured. PSC is continuing to have this dialogue with partners and interested parties to gather all requirements in order develop a solution that addresses all recruitment needs.

Project Phases

The GC Jobs Transformation project is currently in the discovery phase.

Phase 0 Pre-Project (2018 – 2021)

The pre-project phase is all about collecting information:

From job seekers, hiring managers, HR professionals and stakeholders about their needs. From industry about what currently exists in the private sector in terms of recruitment solution. As part of the discovery phase work, the project team will conduct a business process review of the end-to-end staffing process with the intent to streamline the business. A Request for Information was sent out to explore what currently exists in the private sector in terms of recruitment solutions. This provided companies in the recruitment industry with the opportunity to demonstrate their solutions.

The demos will inform the Public Service Commission and help us make a decision about the future solution, including how it will be developed.

In 2019-20 an options analysis will be completed to determine the best way forward, whether it is to buy, build or a combination of both. In addition, Proof of Concept evaluation will be conducted with selected departments and agencies to further assess the feasibility of commercially available solutions.

PHASE 1 - Pilot Deployment (2021- 2022)

In this next phase of the project, live pilots will be conducted with selected departments and agencies to gather user feedback on the solution, validate assumptions and inform further configuration efforts.

PHASE 2 - Implementation (2022 and beyond)

This is the final phase of the project in which GC-wide implementation begins, including final configuration work pursuant to findings from pilot evaluations. The project will then transition to product management, soliciting feedback on the new recruitment solution to inform enhancements and continuously improve the user experience.
