Protecting your Social Insurance Number


Due to COVID-19, all face-to-face operations at Public Service Commission test centres are postponed until further notice. This includes second language evaluations (reading, writing and oral), occupational tests, managerial and leadership assessments, and counselling sessions. Please wait for the test centre to contact you to confirm your new test date.

Note: The Public Service Commission will be conducting second language interviews for levels B and C remotely, by telephone, as a temporary measure in place of the Test of Oral Proficiency. These interviews will only be used to staff bilingual positions that are related to COVID-19 or that ensure the effective functioning of the Government of Canada.

Questions and answers for Canadians

The Public Service Commission (PSC) is responsible for promoting and safeguarding a merit-based, representative and non-partisan public service that serves all Canadians, in collaboration with stakeholders. We also manage the tools for public service recruitment, providing applicants and managers with a single portal to access all public service job opportunities.

We report independently to Parliament on our mandate. Our annual report and special reports are tabled in Parliament by our designated minister, the President of the Queen’s Privy Council.
