Draft Regulation respecting the qualification process and qualified persons
The Québec Ombudsman underscores the Conseil du Trésor's efforts to streamline access to public service jobs by making it possible for candidates to apply at any time as part of the qualification process. However, it considers that the draft regulation raises issues of compliance with the Act respecting administrative justice, and has therefore made three recommendations concerning the content:
- The obligation to provide candidates with a substantiated decision in writing informing them of the outcome of the qualification process.
- The obligation to inform candidates who have not been selected of the recourse available for contesting a decision through the Commission de la fonction publique;
- In cases where a bank of qualified persons is to terminate before the five-year registration period of a qualified person is up, the obligation to promptly notify that person.
