À la défense d'un idéal contesté: Le principe de Mérite et la Commission de la fonction publique, 1908-2008

by Luc Juillet Ken Rasmussen

En 1908, afin de lutter contre le favoritisme qui mine autant l'efficacité de l'administration publique que la démocratie, le Parlement canadien décrète que les fonctionnaires de l'état seront dorénavant nommés selon le principe du mérite, en fonction de processus administrés par un organisme indépendant : la Commission de la fonction publique du Canada. Publié à l'occasion du centenaire de la commission, ce livre retrace l'histoire de ce principe et de cette institution, nés dans la controverse et, depuis, le sujet d'inlassables débats. Il permet de mieux comprendre la résilience exceptionnelle et la contribution unique de la commission à l'édification d'une administration publique indépendante, qui constitue un pilier important de la démocratie parlementaire canadienne. On y découvre également comment la commission a contribué, au fil des ans, à trouver un équilibre sans cesse renouvelé entre trois objectifs, reliés mais parfois contradictoires, associés à la dotation de l'administration publique d'une démocratie libérale : la neutralité politique de l'administration, l'égalité démocratique et l'efficacité en matière de gestion.

Defending a Contested Ideal: Merit and the Public Service Commission, 1908-2008

by Luc Juillet Ken Rasmussen

In 1908, after decades of struggling with a public administration undermined by systemic patronage, the Canadian parliament decided that public servants would be selected on the basis of merit, through a system administered by an independent agency: the Public Service Commission of Canada. This history, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Commission, recounts its unique contribution to the development of an independent public service, which has become a pillar of Canadian parliamentary democracy.
