Occupational Group Structure: Classification Update for PA group members

Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat announced that their planned implementation date for Program and Administrative Services (PA) group’s new job evaluation standards is October 2022. This target requires department and system readiness, so it is subject to change.

Although the mapping of actual positions to sub-groups has not yet taken place, we still believe that the PA group will be restructured to five new sub-groups as per our previous update.

Your current rights will be protected regardless of the outcome of this process. This means no one will suffer a reduction in salary due to their classification potentially being converted to a lower wage level. You will be guaranteed to remain at your current salary (this is enshrined in the collective agreement as Salary Protection Status). This protection will apply until the position is vacated. In addition, as wages for your new classification exceed your current salary, your pay will be increased to the new classification level.
