Salary Level

Federal Public Service - Student Rates of Pay

 

  1. So that rates of pay are detailed on the Treasury Board page: https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/services/pay/rates-pay/student-rates-pay.html. Generally, I would imagine for SCARP students (as they are at the Master’s level) the pay would range between $18.97-$23.78.
  2. They can send their applications directly to me (Christopher.sheppard2@canada.ca)

A resume and cover letter is appropriate, however I would ask if the applicants were able to indicate either in the body of their email or one the resume or cover letter whether or not they are a Canadian citizen. There is no need to incorporate it into the text. E.g. “Citizenship:
