The Canadian Government has announced one of the largest inventory opening through Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). This inventory is for casual employment.
There is no other police force in Canada that provides the levels of services and variety offered by the RCMP. With over 150 specializations a career with the RCMP is full of opportunity for continued learning and growth. Casual employment is temporary employment of 90 working days or less in a calendar year, to meet needs for temporary vacancies arising from vacation, sick leave, training, special projects, etc.
It is worthy of note that casual appointments are exempted from the provisions of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA). This means casual appointments will not be eligible to apply to internal appointment processes. Also, the PSEA states that the number of days worked as a casual worker cannot exceed 90 days in a calendar year within the same department.
When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies. As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

This results in occasional exposure to intoxicated, mentally unstable, hostile and potentially violent individuals to victims of crime or relatives of accident victims who may be distraught. The work is performed in an open office environment. It involves tight deadlines, time pressures, frequent interruptions, conflicting priorities and multiple demands from staff, callers and visitors.
