It’s important to self-declare because we want to have a workforce that reflects the diversity of the population we serve. We encourage you to declare your employment equity status when completing your profile.
Historically, women, persons of Aboriginal descent, persons with a disability, and members of visible minority groups faced barriers in the workplace. It is our intention to ensure that members of these under-represented groups are given the opportunity to participate equitably in employment and career advancement opportunities consistent with their abilities and aspirations.
In order to measure our progress and deliver effective diversity programs, it is critical that we maintain accurate information about our workforce and prospective candidates. We strongly encourage you to self-declare within your online application today.
