Information about the statistical tables

More detailed Annual Report data are available electronically at www.psc–cfp.gc.ca.

Figures in the Annual Report may not add to totals due to rounding.

Hiring and staffing activities

Hiring activities refer to indeterminate and specified 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 Exclusion Approval Order. Indeterminate and specified term appointments to the public service include appointments from the general public, including former casuals, students and government organizations that are not subject to the PSEA.

Staffing activities within the public service include all indeterminate and specified term promotions, lateral and downward movements and acting appointments. Deployments of employees within or between organizations or agencies 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 of Canada Secretariat’s (TBS) Incumbent File. This file is extracted from the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) pay system. The Public Service Commission (PSC) has developed a series of algorithms that are used against these files to produce the PSC’s official record of hiring and staffing activities across the federal public service, based on pay transactions submitted by organizations. Recruitment data for the Research Affiliate Program, the Recruitment of Policy Leaders Program and the Post–Secondary Recruitment Program are based on individuals who have applied to these specific programs through the PSC Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS) in the last two fiscal years and where a match was found in the PSC hiring and staffing activities file covering the current fiscal year.

Employment equity

Employment equity (EE) refers to appointments to the public service to indeterminate and specified term positions greater than three months for EE designated groups (women, members of visible minorities, persons with disabilities and Aboriginal peoples).

Employment equity data for members of visible minorities, persons with disabilities and Aboriginal peoples are based on those who applied and self–declared through the PSC PSRS in the last two fiscal years and where a match was found in the PSC hiring and staffing activities files covering the current fiscal year. These exclude specified term appointments of less than three months and appointments to separate agencies. Data on women are derived from TBS’s incumbent file.

Population

Population data refers to the number of active employees in organizations under the exclusive appointment authority of the PSC (employees of organizations named in Schedule I, most of Schedule IV and some agencies in Schedule V to the Financial Administration Act). They differ from numbers reported by TBS that reflect employment in organizations under the Public Service Staff Relations Act. In addition, a number of separate agencies are subject to Part 7 of the PSEA that administers political activities of public servants. They are excluded from statistics presented in the Annual Report. The population count represents the number of employees at a specific point in time.

Population data are derived from the TBS’s incumbent file. This file is extracted from the PWGSC pay system.

Priority administration

Priority administration data refers to information on the number of priority entitlements registered with the PSC, the number of priority person placements and the number of removals for other reasons, by priority type.

This information is taken from the PSC’s Priority Information Management System (PIMS). PIMS is the PSC’s Web–based tool with which organizations register their persons who have priority entitlement and that organizations must search when conducting an appointment process.

Applicant data

Applicant data refers to information on selected characteristics (e.g., geographical area and educational profile) for applicants to externally advertised processes, via the Post–Secondary Recruitment Program, the Federal Student Work Experience Program and general external recruitment advertisements of departments and agencies.

This information is captured through the PSRS each time an application is submitted. An applicant may be represented more than once in a table if they have submitted an application for more than one position.

(a) The figures for women appointed to the public service are extracted from the Public Service Commission (PSC) hiring and staffing activities files. These exclude specified term appointments of less than three months and appointments to separate agencies. These PSC files are based on the Public Works and Government Services Canada pay system.

(b) The figures for the three other employment equity (EE) designated groups are based on applicants who applied and self-declared through the PSC Public Service Resourcing System in the last two fiscal years and where a match was found in the PSC hiring and staffing activities files as of March 31, 2011. These exclude specified term appointments of less than three months and appointments to separate agencies. The sum of EE designated groups does not equal the total as a person may self-declare in more than one EE designated group and men are included in the total. Consequently, the totals do not match other tables.

The suppression of certain data cells has been applied in order to respect the confidentiality requirements of personal information. They have been replaced by the missing value indicator “*”.

Note: The difference between the number of organizations in this table (79) and the number of organizations who have signed an Appointment Delegation and Accountability Instrument (83) is related to organizations that do not show as separate entities in the Public Works and Government Services Canada pay system, which means for these organizations the Public Service Commission cannot show population and/or hiring and staffing activities.

Note: The difference between the number of organizations identified in this table (80) and the number of organizations who have signed an Appointment Delegation and Accountability Instrument (83) is related to organizations that do not show as separate entities in the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) pay system, which means for these organizations the Public Service Commission cannot show population and/or hiring and staffing activities.

The population counts are taken from the incumbent file. The incumbent file, which comes from the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, is an extract from the PWGSC pay system and may vary from counts maintained in organizational human resource systems.

(a) The number of carry-overs from March 31, 2010 differ from the number of active cases at March 31, 2010 published in last year’s Annual Report due to priority registrations received late in March 2010 and activated after the start of the new fiscal year. The validation of data to the Priority Information Management System may also be a factor.

(b) Priority type changes are included in “other removal.”

(c) Although the priority entitlement for surplus employees is established in the Public Service Employment Regulations, s.40 of the Public Service Employment Act provides deputy heads with the authority to place their own organization’s surplus employees before considering other priority persons. Surplus employees within their home organizations accounted for 160 of the 240 appointments in 2010-2011.

(b) An application is counted multiple times when it is received for an advertisement containing multiple work locations.
