Elections Canada posts 250 jobs “...for a general election or referendum”

Elections Canada needs an extra 250 temporary staffers, according to an advertisement re-posted less than one day after Justin Trudeau prorogued Parliament.

The tender notice was originally posted on July 24, but was updated early this morning:

As part of its readiness planning activities for a general election or referendum, Elections Canada has a requirement for up to 250 temporary help resources on standby ready to be quickly deployed. Elections Canada anticipates issuing up to five Standing Offers for the provision of ten different temporary help resource categories, as listed in the SOW. Offerors may be required to provide the services of any or all ten temporary help resource categories to Elections Canada on an “as and when required” basis within 24 hours of a Call-up.

Documents provided by Elections Canada show that the temporary staffers will be at the Elections Canada Headquarters in Gatineau, Quebec and at the Elections Canada Distribution Centre in Ottawa:

Elections Canada confirms that resources will be deployed to those two locations, and there is no estimate in terms of how many resources for each location.

Further documents responding to prospective agencies implies that these two locations may house bilingual call centres:

Question:
Please provide a breakdown of how many of the 250 required will need to be bilingual? May we also have a breakdown of the 250 resources by role (i.e. 5 Call Center Agents, 1 Call Centre Supervisor? Etc.)

Answer:
Elections Canada confirms these numbers cannot be provided as it will only be determined upon issuance of a call-up.
