Public Service Employees

CIHR is a separate agency of the Government of Canada, which allows us to establish human resources policies and programs that meet CIHR’s specific needs. If you are a public service employee joining CIHR, or considering it, you may have questions about what it means to work for a separate agency and how it may affect you. When you join CIHR, you will have access to the same benefits and entitlements that you enjoyed as a public service employee.
