Human resources (transition binder 2019)

In-house HR is new to the Agency

From its creation in 2001 until December 2017, FCAC relied on a government third-party service provider, most recently the Human Rights Commission (CHRC), for HR services.

Since then, the Agency has repatriated most HR services, including staffing and compensation, to better serve its needs as a rapidly growing organization.

Some HR functions remain outsourced: CHRC continues to provide personnel records management and My GCHR systems administration services under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding (current MOU expires in 2021).

In November 2018, FCAC hired its first HR executive, and in December the Directorate began reporting to the Commissioner.

A new structure and additional resources were approved in February 2019, based on a rigorous assessment of the current and future needs of the Agency.

Human Resources Directorate: Structure and responsibilities

HR Operations team key responsibilities

HR Programs and policies team key responsibilities

Compensation, benefits and integrity team key responsibilities

The HR legislative landscape is complex

Under the FCAC Act, the Commissioner is delegated authority for all aspects of HR Management.

Employees are appointed in accordance with the PSEA, but the Agency has its own Terms and Conditions of Employment.

FCAC is a separate employer that operates in a non-unionized environment. It employs a unique classification (RE/REX) with ten levels.

Employees at all levels are eligible to earn performance pay. Salary advancement is provided solely on the basis of performance.

HR management at FCAC is in its infancy
