What is a Governor in Council Appointment?

A Governor in Council (GIC) appointment is one made by the Governor General, on the advice of the Queen’s Privy Council of Canada (i.e., the Cabinet). The appointments are made through an Order in Council (OIC) and range from heads of agencies and chief executive officers of Crown corporations to members of quasi-judicial tribunals.

Candidates can register and create their account for GIC appointment applications here. Once the account has been created, candidates will then be able to apply to opportunities when they are posted on the Governor in Council Opportunities website.

The Government of Canada is moving quickly to apply a more rigorous approach to Governor in Council appointments. More information on the new approach and the Governor in Council Appointment process is available online.
