Recruitment of Policy Leaders Program

Recruitment of Policy Leaders Program (RPL) is designed to give organizations the opportunity to attract and recruit exceptional leaders from across Canada, including Canadians living abroad, who have a proven track record as thinkers and self-starters and are passionate about getting involved in shaping public policy.

To take advantage of RPL, all you have to do is access the RPL partially-assessed pool by contacting the Public Service Commission (PSC). Taking into consideration your requirements, the PSC will identify available candidates from the pool.

You will be required to obtain a PSC priority clearance through the Priority Information Management System. Please contact your human resources advisor for assistance.

Since certain merit criteria have already been assessed through the RPL process, candidates must be assessed against your organizational Statement of Merit Criteria to ensure that they meet all the merit criteria, including those stated in the Qualification Standards of the respective occupational group and all of the conditions of employment (security clearance, for example).
