Release of the Public Service Commission of Canada’s Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2022 to 2023

December 15, 2023 – Gatineau, Québec

Today the Public Service Commission of Canada (PSC) released its Annual Report 2022 to 2023, which provides an overview of the health and integrity of hiring and non-partisanship in the federal public service.

This year’s report reflects progress in building a more inclusive and diverse public service, including the efforts of departments and agencies to implement the most recent amendments to the Public Service Employment Act. These legislative changes represent an important shift in making federal hiring inclusive by design.

The report highlights the continued efforts of federal departments and agencies to modernize and transform the hiring system to recruit talented people and adapt to an evolving staffing environment. A starting point for the PSC was a shift to second language testing on a more accessible online platform, which should lead to more efficient hiring and fewer barriers, while ensuring merit is protected.

The annual report also includes the results of oversight activities that help the PSC protect merit and non-partisanship.
