Develop your core competencies
A core competency is a description of a particular behaviour, skill or attribute that employees should possess to meet organizational needs, regardless of their job or role. Most federal government organizations have identified core competencies for their staff, and many non-profit and private sector organizations have as well.
These core competencies have been drawn from those established at a number of federal government departments, including:
• Canadian Heritage
• Canada Revenue Agency
• Environment and Climate Change Canada
• Employment and Social Development Canada
• Natural Resources Canada
• Public Services and Procurement Canada
• Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
Many of the following competencies apply to almost any type of organization. If you feel there is a competency that should be added to this list, please contact us. Click on the competency in the list below for more information on each. You can also see which competencies a particular PMC workshop addresses within the workshop outlines themselves. For your convenience, individual competencies have been grouped into 5 umbrella “themes” below.
