Canada's Top Employers for Young People 2017

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) received special recognition as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People in 2017.

At DFO and CCG, we recognize that a generational change is underway within the federal public service and that hiring and developing young talent from all walks of life will help us better reflect the needs of Canadians as we carry out our mandate.

Every year, our Department hires the next generation of ‘Coasties’, Fishery Officers, Inshore Rescue Boat crews, scientists and other young people who are embarking on their careers. Attracting new talent brings innovative ideas, creativity, energy and enthusiasm that not only contributes to a rich and culturally diverse workplace but which also helps us chart a progressive path forward.

Recruiting young people who have a passion for public service is only half the equation. We must also work hard to retain them by providing professional development, networking and learning opportunities and doing more to engage them in meaningful work.
