Recent Graduates

The CFIA hires recent graduates through established programs such as the Post-Secondary Recruitment (PSR) program, and the Financial Officer Recruitment and Development / Internal Auditor Recruitment and Development (FORD/IARD) program. We offer many opportunities in a wide range of career choices.

If you are a student at one of Canada's veterinary colleges or a recent graduate in veterinary medicine, visit our Veterinary Student Corner. Here you'll find information on the CFIA's veterinary student initiatives, including summer employment opportunities, and national and international veterinary experiential opportunities.

Post-Secondary Recruitment (PSR)

The CFIA currently hires recent university and college graduates for entry-level officer positions through the Post-Secondary Recruitment (PSR) program. The PSR program provides two choices for organizations to post their employment needs - through an advertised career choice or a general inventory. The advertised career choices are targeted at specific job opportunities that call for specific educational requirements, while the general inventory is non-specific and is open to college and university students of all fields of study.

The primary PSR campaign normally begins in early Fall, but PSR opportunities at the CFIA and elsewhere in the public service are posted throughout the year.
