NPSIA Works: Career Futures


Description of the Field

In addition to international jobs found within DFAIT, almost every federal department has an

'International Division' which relates to international and other national organizations in its subject

areas. Activities in this division may include researching another country’s experiences,

exchanging information with a department’s counterpart in another country, preparing policy papers on international aspects of the department's mandates. Moreover, activities relating to international agreements (both bilateral and multilateral) include research, negotiation and implementation.

Within each province, a growing number of provincial departments have international units.

Provincial and municipal governments also have some international jobs which tend to be concentrated in the fields of trade promotion and tourism. International conferences and events expand opportunities for international jobs within these levels of government.

Many overlook the public service sector, not understanding the opportunities available. A number of agencies are looking to change that trend by providing information, programs and grants to potential employees.

Foreign Service Officers have a special role, in representing Canada at Embassies and High Commissions around the world. They also represent the Canadian government at permanent missions to international organizations such as WTO and the UN. Recruitment to the diplomatic service is through a rigorous exam and interview process, and those selected undergo training and subsequently serve alternately in Ottawa and abroad.

The major departments that NPSIA alumni are involved with are: DFAIT, Agriculture, Industry Canada, National Defence, Citizen and Immigration, Environment and Health. Below is a selection of jobs NPSIA alumni have found in the public sector.
