Alberta Public Service recruitment directives

Human resource directives for Alberta Public Service employees that cover the recruitment process.


Alberta Public Service Human Resource directives set out the general entitlements, benefits, and authority that apply in the administration of human resources in government organizations under the Public Service Act.

Unless otherwise specified, these recruitment directives apply to bargaining unit, opted out and excluded, and management Alberta Public Service employees. If a recruitment directive addresses a topic that is also covered by the Collective Agreement, bargaining unit employees will be governed by the Collective Agreement.

At the bottom of each recruitment directive is information on who the directive applies to, authority for the directive, the effective date, and the area within Alberta Public Service Commission responsible for its content. All directives are subject to applicable legislation.
