9780773501591: The Biography of an Institution: The Civil Service Commission of Canada 1908-1967 (Canadian Public Administration Series)

This book is the first full-scale study of the history of the Civil Service Commission of Canada, an organization launched on a wave of civil service reform to uphold the merit principle of selection. The historical narrative culminates in the 1967 legislation which reshaped personnel policy in the federal bureaucracy and set the Public Service Commission on its contemporary path. Attention is directed to the economy-efficiency role of the Commission, the changing perspectives of the staff associations, and the growth of the Treasury Board's powers in personnel policy. In the final chapter, the authors examine the effects of the administration of the merit principle on personnel policy regarding veterans, French Canadians and women.
