That's a standard across the board now, not limited to the federal government. A friend who works for the LCBO has been a casual worker for 4 years and the average time it takes to become a full time employee is about 12! So, he continues to work 40 hour weeks with no benefits, not paid vacation, no pension, but then again, this is common in just about every industry now. My company also takes part in this - however we employ a constant contract-to-full time goal with all employees (usually 3-6 months is our aim for conversion).
