Employment Equity Designated Groups under the Public Service Employment Act

The Public Service Commission (PSC) collects data on individuals who apply through the Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS) for advertisements open to Canadians on the PSC’s jobs.gc.ca website. This enables the PSC to assess employment equity (EE) trends and performance regarding the share of external applicants of the following EE groups: Women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities.

Student hiring EE data for Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities are based on those who applied and self-declared through PSRS and where a match was found in the PSC hiring and staffing activities files covering the current fiscal year. Students hired under the Post-Secondary Recruitment (PSR) and Co-op/Internship (CO-OP) Programs are excluded. Data on women are derived from the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat Incumbent File.
