Elections Canada Staff at our Headquarters

There are presently no job postings available. Check back regularly for updates.

Elections Canada employs several hundred people in its offices in Gatineau and at its distribution centre in Ottawa. These employees plan and prepare for electoral events and produce the reports required by the Canada Elections Act.

During a general election, Elections Canada hires additional employees who work for the entire election period, which lasts at least 36 days. Some of these employees may remain in their positions for a few weeks or months longer, depending on the projects they have been assigned. These additional employees work mainly at Elections Canada in Gatineau on the following tasks: support for returning officers; electoral logistics; communication with electors; and, after the election, drafting studies emerging from the electoral event and preparing reports.
