The SNPS is an important tool for understanding public servants' perceptions of the public service staffing system as well as their awareness of their legal rights and responsibilities regarding political activities. The information gathered in the survey will be used to identify current and emerging trends at government-wide and organizational levels, to inform potential improvements to staffing policies and practices, and better target efforts to safeguard non-partisanship within the federal public service. The survey will provide vital information to managers, human resources advisors and Deputies to improve staffing within their own organizations, and to the Public Service Commission (PSC) on the staffing system as a whole. The information will also be used to support reporting to Parliament via the PSC's Annual Report.

Population data refers to the number of active employees in organizations under the exclusive appointment authority of the Public Service Commission (PSC) (employees of organizations named in the Financial Administration Act — Schedule I, most of Schedule IV and some agencies in Schedule V). This differs from numbers reported by the Treasury Board Secretariat (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 Public Service Employment Act (PSEA), which administers the political activities of public servants. The population count represents the number of active employees at a specific point in time.

The investigations function plays an important role in the Public Service Commission’s (PSC) accountability to Parliament by helping safeguard the integrity of appointments and by overseeing the political impartiality of the federal public service. Part 5 of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) provides the Commission with the authority to conduct investigations into appointment processes. This includes:

  • Section 66: Merit, errors, omissions or improper conduct in external appointment processes;
  • Subsections 67(1) and (2): For non-delegated appointments, or errors, omissions or improper conduct in internal appointment processes at the request of a deputy head;
  • Section 68: Suspicion of political influence in any appointment process; and
  • Section 69: Suspicion of fraud in any appointment process. Under the PSEA, the Commission also has exclusive authority to conduct investigations into allegations that an employee has failed to comply with subsections 113(1), 114(1) to (3) or 115(1) of the PSEA, that is, they engaged in improper political activity.

The Canada School of Public Service (CSPS) Digital Academy is committed to creating learning products and experiences that meet the needs of public servants and their organizations, and help them acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to be successful in a modern age. In order to plan our future learning products, we’ve recently conducted a user study "Shape Your Learning" to help us gain insights into public servants’ knowledge and skills levels in areas related to digital, as well as into learning habits, preferences and interests. We received responses from 4,775 public servants, and we have great insights to share! The results are helping us better understand the digital literacy level of various organizations, identify specific learning needs, and make important decisions on how we can best support public servants.
