Notes

The data in this and other tables in this report cover employees identified for the purpose of employment equity in the Regulations to the Employment Equity Act. . The estimates of workforce availability (WFA) are based on information from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) and the 2013 Canadian Survey on Disability (CSD).They include only Canadian citizens in those occupations in the Canadian workforce that correspond to occupations in the federal public service.

Internal representation is based on those who have voluntarily chosen to self-identify to date as an Aboriginal person, a person with disability and/or a person in a visible minority group.
