Public service population grows by 4.6% in 2018-19

The number of federal workers that fall under the Public Service Employment Act grew by 4.6 per cent annually in the 2018-19 fiscal year, says a new government report published Thursday.

Over that span, total hiring activity jumped by 11.9 per cent, with indeterminate and temporary employee hires jumping to their highest levels in the last 10 years, reads the Public Service Commission of Canada’s 2018-19 Annual Report.

Specifically, indeterminate hires — employees appointed on a continuous basis as opposed to contract, casual, seasonal or student workers — increased by 34.2 per cent in the last fiscal year. Term or contract workers picked up by 10.9 per cent in that period.
