Public Service Commission of Canada: Notice to News Editors

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 3, 2007) -

Who we are:

The Public Service Commission (PSC) of Canada is dedicated to building a public service that strives for excellence. We protect merit, non-partisanship, representativeness and the use of both official languages.

We safeguard the integrity of staffing in the public service and the political impartiality of public servants. We develop policies and guidance for public service managers and hold them accountable for their staffing decisions. We conduct audits and investigations to confirm the effectiveness of the staffing system and to make improvements. As an independent agency, we report our results to Parliament.

We recruit talented Canadians to the public service, drawn from across the country. We continually renew our recruitment services to meet the needs of a modern and innovative public service.

Why you may be interested:

From time to time the PSC publishes the results of audits and studies, as well as an annual report to Parliament, which deal with topics that may be of interest to your readers, viewers or listeners. Recently we published the results of a Drop-Off Study on Employment Equity www.psc-cfp.gc.ca/ee/drp-dcln/index_e.htm that you may find of interest.
