Career Management Program

Program Overview

One of the objectives of the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) is to ensure the timely identification and development of highly qualified individuals. The Career Management Program (CMP) is aimed at providing such an opportunity within OSFI’s Supervision Sector.

Entrants into the Career Management Program will go beyond the hypothetical and be exposed to the everyday application of OSFI’s Supervisory framework in a working environment. They will also be exposed to related functional and support activities around the framework, which will provide an opportunity to develop analytical, teamwork and leadership skills in a structured and progressive fashion.

The Career Management Program prepares its candidates for positions within OSFI’s Supervision Sector, and progress through the program will be based upon individual performance, as well as the development of certain requisite skills.

Trainees entering the Career Management Program will move along a career path which includes a systematic rotation of three separate 8-month work assignments over a two-year period. Training objectives and performance commitments will be established to help participants advance to a higher level position after completion of the program.


The Career Management Program will provide trainees with:

  • a strong knowledge of the organization and its operations, with emphasis on understanding corporate strategies, systems and practices;
  • opportunities to develop their knowledge of the financial industry, federal and provincial legislations, regulations, guidelines, policies and trends;
  • opportunities to enhance analytical, problem solving, project management and presentation skills, as well as teamwork and cooperation skills;
  • opportunities to increase knowledge and skills in the application of financial analysis and audit techniques and principles.
