Independent Appointments Commission

The services provided by the province’s agencies, boards, and commissions (ABCs) are among the most important in Newfoundland and Labrador. ABCs provide valued leadership and advice in areas ranging from health care to housing to human rights.

The Independent Appointments Commission (IAC) is an independent body established by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to provide merit-based recommendations for appointments to approximately 30 entities scheduled to the IAC Act (Tier 1 entities).  The Public Service Commission (PSC), in addition to providing support to the IAC, also issues merit-based recommendations to a further 130 ABCs (Tier 2 entities).

The merit-based appointment process is open and accessible and ensures the people appointed have the necessary qualifications and are reflective of the population they serve.

We encourage you to explore this webpage, learn more about our Commission, the ABCs, the appointments process, and, most importantly, the opportunities for you to play an active role in your province.
