In June 2021, the Budget Implementation Act, 2021, No.1 introduced changes to the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) with the aim of strengthening diversity and inclusion in the public service and addressing biases or barriers that disadvantage persons belonging to equity-seeking groups. Since July 1, 2023, additional changes impacting hiring managers have also been implemented.

This informative event provides hiring managers with an overview of the amendments to the PSEA, including new sub-delegated staffing authorities and the requirement to conduct an evaluation of assessment methods to identify and remove biases and barriers or mitigate their impacts, among other important changes.

Hiring managers will be equipped with the latest resources and tools to support the successful implementation of these amendments.
