Name of creator
The Civil Service Commission was established in 1917 under the Civil Service Act (SBC 1917, c. 9). The act provided for a one-member Civil Service Commission reporting to the Provincial Secretary. The first commissioner, W.H. MacInnes, was appointed in 1918. His duties were to administer testing for admission or promotion in the civil service and to investigate and report on the operation of the act within the government departments. A new Civil Service Act (SBC 1945, c. 11) was passed in 1945. It provided for a Civil Service Commission consisting of three members. The name was changed to Public Service Commission with the enactment of the Public Service Act (SBC 1973, c. 143) in 1973.
