The Civil Service Commission was established in 1908 under the Civil Service Amendment Act, which introduced the principle of merit as established by competition. The Civil Service Act of 1962 preserved the independence of the CSC and the Public Service Employment Act of 1967 reaffirmed the merit principle and changed the name of the CSC to Public Service Commission (PSC). The PSC is an independent government agency that safeguards merit-based hiring, non-partisanship, representativeness (aboriginal people, visible minorities, women, and people with disabilities) and the use of both official languages (English and French) in the Canadian public service. The PSC has the mandate to appoint people to the public service, and to promote people within the government. The PSC can also assist government departments with hiring and assessment tools.
