We support and adhere to the Canadian Legislation as outlined in the Employment Equity Act by the Government of Canada, and the Canadian Human Rights Commission of Canada:
“It is not a discriminatory practice for an employer to give preferential treatment to Aboriginal persons in hiring, promotion or other aspects of employment, when the primary purpose of the employer is to serve the needs of Aboriginal people.”
Our Hiring Policy Values
We believe that every person has the right to equitable employment opportunities, advancement, and career progression based upon bona fide job requirements and qualifications.
We recognize that employment equity is a vital and fundamental right in Canadian society.
We are committed to eliminating employment barriers, and identifying discriminatory and inequitable practices.
We are driving change towards increased workforce representation of Women, Indigenous Peoples, People with Disabilities, and Visible Minorities.
We know that in order to achieve equal opportunity to employment in the workplace, no person should be denied employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability, gender, race, or religious beliefs.
We support and believe that employment equity means not treating people in the same way, and Employers require measures to accommodate differences.
