The Public Service Commission’s (PSC) Priority Entitlement Program supports the referral and placement of persons with a priority for appointment in the public service, as outlined in the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) and the Public Service Employment Regulations (PSER). Under this legal framework, persons who meet specific conditions have a right, for a specified or indeterminate period of time, to be appointed to positions for which they are qualified. Priority Administration data refers to information on the number of persons with a priority entitlement registered with the PSC, the number of placements of persons with a priority entitlement and the number of removals for other reasons, by priority type. This information is taken from the PSC’s Priority Information Management System (PIMS).

Most Canadians feel that sentencing guidelines are the best way to ensure a fair sentence and they believe that sentencing would be more consistent with such guidelines. Many Canadians also believe that Canada should consider having a sentencing commission, and that most important activity of this body would be to give judges guidelines for sentencing decisions.

What we also found:

Seven in ten (71%) Canadians indicated that the best approach to sentencing is to provide guidelines while sill allowing for a judge's discretion.

More than eight in ten (83%) thought that guidelines for sentencing would help making sentencing more consistent (only 4% did not believe that this would be the case) and that Canada should consider having set guidelines (81%).

On March 23, 2004, the Government announced a new policy on the mandatory publication of contracts over $10,000. At the time, certain types of contracts were excluded from the proactive disclosure requirements, chief among these being contracts for legal services. TBS has revised the Treasury Board Guidelines on the Proactive Disclosure of Contracts to remove the exemption for contracts for legal services. Under the current guidelines, the only contracts exempted from proactive disclosure obligations are those where disclosure of information would compromise criminal investigations, national security, negotiations or public safety.
