Disclosure of Position Reclassifications

On February 25, 2004, the government announced the mandatory publication of information concerning the reclassification of occupied positions in the Public Service of Canada.

This web site provides information on the reclassification of occupied positions of the Veterans Review and Appeal Board on a quarterly basis.

The rules and principles governing the reclassification of occupied positions are outlined in the Guidelines on Reclassifications (Opens a New Window.) These guidelines provide Deputy Heads with a framework within which to exercise their delegated classification authority for the reclassification of the position:

  • Changes to departmental/program mandate;
  • Managers reorganize in response to external conditions that increase or decrease available resources;
  • Managers reorganize to make more efficient and effective use of their financial and human resources, such as technology innovations, changes in employee competencies; or
  • Managers reassign work among their existing human resources to increase productivity, such as in response to vacancies that require temporary or permanent reassignment of work;
  • Results from a classification grievance.

Reclassification of occupied positions in the Public Service of Canada is an important and necessary business management option.  However, when comtemplating changes to a position that may result in reclassification, management must endeavour to ensure the proper, effective and efficient uses of public money. The cost implication associated with upward reclassification must be known, transparent and support accountability for classification decisions.

Government-Wide Position Reclassification Departmental Web Sites:(Opens a New Window) Information on these web sites will be updated every three months, starting in October 2004.

Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act (Opens a New Window) or the Privacy Act (Opens a New Window) does not appear on this web site.
