Background information

Hiring activities refers to indeterminate and term appointments to the public service, the hiring of casuals as per subsection 50(1) of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) and the hiring of students under the Student Employment Programs Participants Exclusion Approval Order. Indeterminate and term appointments to the public service include appointments from the general public, including former casuals, students and employees of government organizations that are not subject to the PSEA.

Staffing activities to and within the public service include appointments to the public service as well as promotions, lateral and downward movements and acting appointments of indeterminate and term employees. Deployments of employees within or between organizations that are subject to the PSEA are counted in lateral and downward movements.

Hiring and staffing activities data are derived from information received from the Treasury Board Secretariat Incumbent File. This file is extracted from the Public Services and Procurement Canada pay system. The Public Service Commission (PSC) has developed a series of algorithms that are used to produce the PSC’s official record of hiring and staffing activities across the federal public service, based on pay records submitted by organizations. Recruitment data for the Recruitment of Policy Leaders Initiative and the Post-Secondary Recruitment Program are based on individuals who have applied to these programs through the PSC’s Public Service Resourcing System and where a match was found in the PSC hiring and staffing activities file covering the current fiscal year.
