Statistical Update on Appointments to the Public Service by Employment Equity Designated Group for 2012-2013 (14-08)

2014-03-28

As indicated in the Public Service Commission (PSC) 2012-2013 Annual Report, the PSC has released a Appointments to the Public Service by Employment Equity Designated Group for 2012-2013 – Statistical Update, which we encourage you to review and share within your organization.

In 2012-2013, the PSC and the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer worked together to address a long-standing issue of different methodologies used within the public service to report employment equity (EE) information. To address this issue, a common methodology was developed that ensures consistent reporting of EE data across the federal public service.

This common methodology improves the quality and completeness of information on designated groups, in addition to improving efficiencies by which departments and agencies obtain and report on EE data.

Should you require further information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 819-420-8808 or Nathalie Roy, Director at 819-420-8805. General inquiries can also be sent to CFP.DSAD-Info-DSAD.PSC@cfp-psc.gc.ca.
