The federal government isn't doing very well in employment equity, according to a new report.

Not a single government department or agency received a "notable" rating on employment equity and only five departments received an "acceptable" rating, in the report by the Public Service Human Resource Management Agency of Canada (PSHRMAC).

The report gave the Public Service Commission, the Canadian International Development Agency, the Correctional Service of Canada, Health Canada, and Canadian Heritage acceptable ratings.
