The Government of Canada is looking to hire wizards and witches, no joke!


No this is not an early April fools prank or anything like that. The government of Canada is looking for wizards and witches to fill various positions.

If you thought the world of magic and Harry Potter was limited to the imagination, then you are wrong. All you need to do is get yourself hired by the Canadian government. As they are looking to fill some wizardry positions.

It sounds like an early April fools joke, but it is honestly 100% real, I think. The website has a job listing for “AS-02 Various Administrative Wizardry Positions – INVENTORY.”

More from Harry Potter

The job pays a decent salary as well. Offering a salary of $57,430 to $61,877. Those living in Canada, or citizens of Canada living abroad, are eligible to apply for the position. A position that has a closing date of August 30, 2019.

So what is going on then? Is this legit, or some weird hoax?

My gut says this is a hoax. As the URL when visiting the page does not appear to be a genuine Government of Canada website and the job position itself is just ridiculous. Also, when you look further down the page, the contact information is listed as “Dumbledore’s Army.”

However, if it is a hoax, it is a good one and the people behind it have gone to extreme lengths to make it look genuine. Basically, there is so much detail it looks genuine.

I honestly don’t know what to believe.
