Functional communities

People who work in the Public Service of Canada and who share common work purposes, functions and professional interests belong to what is known as functional communities. Most public servants are members of at least one such community.

Each functional community helps its members meet personal, professional development or career needs and aspirations. Those who share a specific concern or personal interest (such as learning) may decide to work informally together, even with those in other functional communities, in what is known as a community of practice.

Functional communities may also support federal departments and agencies, for example, by sharing smart practices and coordinating both recruitment and communications programs.
