Hiring decisions in the BC Public Service are based on merit to ensure they are non-partisan and reflect competence and ability to do the job.

Merit has been the foundation of hiring in the public service for more than 100 years and is an important factor in ensuring that we have a strong, neutral workforce that is capable of providing excellent service to the public.

Please refer to the Public Service Act for more information on merit.
