How to request accommodation for a candidate

This section is intended for human resources (HR) specialists. Candidates are invited to consult this section instead: “How to request assessment accommodation”.


HR advisors who are not already familiar with the Assessment Accommodation Unit’s function should read The assessment accommodation process and the Roles and responsibilities sections of this website before submitting their request. They can also find more information in this FAQ.

HR is not required to contact the Public Service Commission (PSC) when accommodation is needed for a non-PSC test. They can determine the accommodation themselves, in collaboration with the candidate.

An accommodation request must be filed each time that the candidate writes a test, even for tests written previously.

If a candidate in need of accommodation has to write a Second Language Evaluation test in one of the PSC's offices, HR should not request accommodation through the Assessment Accommodation Request System. Instead, they should indicate that their candidate needs accommodation when they schedule the test through the SLE-Scheduling System. A request will automatically be generated and sent to the Assessment Accommodation Unit.

Proceed to your request

We will contact HR by email in the days following the submission of the request.

HR should make sure that they have all the following information before beginning to enter their request, since they will not be able to save it in the system:

  • name of candidate
  • type of disability or need
  • test for which the candidate requires accommodation
