Testing and Assessment by the Public Service Commission

The Public Service Commission (PSC) is responsible for evaluating second official language proficiency in appointment processes through the Second Language Evaluation (SLE) standardized tests for oral proficiency, written expression and reading comprehension in both English and French.

The PSC supports deputy heads in maintaining and enhancing a merit-based appointment system by sharing knowledge and providing advice and guidance. The PSC reviews and provides advice to improve assessment tools and processes. Departments and agencies also have access to a range of standardized assessment tools, developed and maintained by the PSC, for selection and development.
