Office of the National Security and Intelligence Advisor to the Prime Minister
Privy Council Office
Government of Canada
From 1985 until his retirement from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in 2019, Mr. Yaworski worked in various operational roles conducting and leading investigations. Throughout his 33-year career at CSIS, Mr. Yaworski was promoted into positions with increasing managerial responsibility. His final five years at CSIS were spent as the Deputy Director of Operations, the number two position at CSIS, with responsibility for overseeing all CSIS operations both domestically and overseas. During this period, Mr. Yaworski had several lengthy assignments as acting director.
Mr. Yaworski has fostered professional relationships and developed friendships across the Canadian intelligence community up to and including the deputy minister level. He has similar relationships within the 5-Eyes community (comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States) and among many of Canada’s allied partners around the world.
Mr. Yaworski’s extensive operational experience and seniority within CSIS has necessitated various briefings and appearances before the Federal Court, House of Commons and Senate Committees, the Security Intelligence Review Committee and the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians. He has also represented Canada in various international forums including NATO’s Security Committee.
