Careers at the Agency

The Canadian Transportation Agency has a long-standing reputation as a trusted and respected Government of Canada tribunal and regulator. That's because transportation matters to us.

We work hard to ensure that our national transportation system is competitive, efficient and accessible to all Canadians.

We're a National Capital Region top employer

The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) has been named as one of the National Capital Region's Top Employers for 2024.

This special designation recognizes employers in the Ottawa-Gatineau area that are leaders in providing exceptional places to work. It identifies the CTA as an organization that offers competitive benefits, professional development opportunities, and a supportive workplace culture.

Diversified workforce

The Canadian Transportation Agency is committed to maintaining a representative workforce reflective of Canadian society.

In support of achieving a diversified workforce and our employment equity goals, qualified candidates who self-declare in a staffing process as a member of an employment equity group may be selected for appointment to fulfill organizational needs, including reducing representation gap. Members of employment equity groups include:

  • Indigenous peoples
  • persons with disabilities
  • visible minorities
  • women

We encourage you to self-identify. For more information on self-declaring, please visit Self-declaring for Government of Canada jobs.

Inclusive and barrier-free recruitment processes

One of the Agency's core mandates is the protection of the fundamental right of persons with disabilities to accessible transportation services. To this end, we are even more committed to increasing the representation of persons with disabilities at the Agency. We strongly encourage you to apply to our job opportunities. The Agency is equally committed to running inclusive and barrier-free recruitment processes. If you have a limitation that may impact your performance at any step of the assessment process, you may request accommodations which are designed to remove barriers and to ensure that candidates with limitations can fully demonstrate their abilities.

Specific information for each posted job, including how to direct your inquiry with the contact person, is available. All information received in relation to accommodation will be kept confidential.

Finally, the Agency has put into place the Government of Canada Workplace Accessibility Passport, a Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat initiative to help employees document barriers that they may face in the workplace and propose possible solutions.
