Addressing Your Cover Letter and Resume

In order to keep the process centralized in Human Resources and Organizational Development, we do not provide the names of hiring managers. Please address your cover letter and resume to “Hiring Committee.”

Foreign Education Credential Recognition

If you received your post-secondary education from an educational institution outside of Canada, a copy of your World Education Services (WES) document or International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS) is required, along with your credentials. If you do not have your WES or ICAS, please visit the World Education Services website or the International Credential Assessment Service of Canada website.

More information on foreign credential recognition can be found on the Government of Canada’s website.

High School Equivalency

If you do not possess a high school diploma, the City of Greater Sudbury recognizes the Academic Career Entrance (ACE) certificate as an equivalent.
