This information session will provide details about the employment and career opportunities offered by Statistics Canada to mathematical-statisticians. The session will be approximately one hour in length, including time for questions at the end.

I would like to take this opportunity to stress the importance of Statistics Canada's annual University Recruitment Campaign, especially for the mathematical-statisticians (MA group). The annual University Recruitment Campaign is our primary source of new mathematical-statisticians. This year, Statistics Canada is expecting to hire 20 to 25 qualified candidates into the MA group.

We are conducting information sessions that specifically target students in the mathematics and statistics fields, in the appropriate departments. I hope you will encourage your students and graduates to consider Statistics Canada as a potential employer, and to participate in the recruitment campaign.

The information session is primarily intended for graduates and students who expect to graduate by September 30th, 2009. Candidates with a university degree in another discipline and students not in their final year are also welcome to attend, as they may find it helpful in making course selections and choosing a career path.

For students who will not be able to attend the information session, a copy of the presentation will be available on the Statistics Canada Web site at www.statcan.gc.ca under /About us /Employment Opportunities / Recruitment and development programs / Mathematical Statisticians (MA). On this Web site, you will also find other useful information.

If you would like any further information, you can contact us by telephone at 1-888-321-3089 or by E-mail at MA-recruitment@statcan.gc.ca.

I would be grateful if you forward this e-mail to teachers, students and graduate students of your department.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,

Javier Oyarzun
