GC101 Series

Every Tuesday from April 4 to April 25 at 1:30 pm ET

The Public Service is Canada’s largest employer and there is a lot for new employees to learn. From key rules to common acronyms, FYN’s GC101 series will explore the total compensation package and give young professionals the basics they need to be informed and successful. All through April, gain a better understanding of essential, yet rarely thoroughly explained topics such as classifications, pay stubs, collective agreements, and pension plans. This is a rare opportunity you won’t want to miss! Relative recordings and resources available here.

In-Person Learning Days

Multiple dates

The Federal Youth Network (FYN) will be hosting in-person learning events again in 2023/2024.

Get to Know Your Team

Every Tuesday from May 2 to May 30 at 1:30 pm ET

The pandemic propelled remote work to places that would have taken decades for us to achieve. This accelerated movement to hybrid work and dispersed teams may have caused us to overlook team culture and interpersonal relationships.
