Getting Started

As a new employee to government, we know that you have many questions about your new work environment.

So let's get started! The information you will find is a starting point to get you familiar with some of the questions most commonly asked by new employees - like yourself. Once you start with us, an orientation in your department and an opportunity to sign up for our corporate orientation session should fill you in on all the other questions you might have about the Alberta Public Service (APS). Simply click on the employee grouping below that you belong to and find the answers to the questions you may have about us!
