A Description of Some Key Provisions of Canada's New Civil Service Act
Volume : 17-2 (1962)
The Civil Service Act, passed in 1918, had never been substantially modified for the 43 years following its adoption.

The report produced was entitled Personnal Administration in the Public Service.
The following article is an analysis of Bill C-71, which resulted from the Commission's report and from the work of a Special Committee of the House established in 1961.
