Should you self-declare?
The Government of Canada encourages all Indigenous Peoples to self-declare as part of their application to federal public service jobs. This makes it easier for hiring managers who are specifically targeting the Indigenous population to staff positions. As part of the self-declaration process, you can choose how the information you provide will be used, whether for statistical purposes only or to be considered for a job.
If you are unsure whether you qualify as a member of the Indigenous community for the purposes of employment equity, please consult the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada’s web pages.
Please be advised that the federal public service reserves the right to ask for proof of Indigenous identity. If you are retained for a position, you must sign the Affirmation of Aboriginal Affiliation Form.
The Government of Canada remains dedicated to building a workforce that is representative of Canada’s population. Please consult Employment Equity information to learn more.
Nunavut Land Claims Agreement beneficiaries
The Government of Canada encourages all Indigenous Peoples who fall under the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement to self-identify as part of their application to federal public service jobs. This helps hiring managers in Nunavut who need to staff their positions according to Article 23 of the Agreement.
Nunavummiut who require help with their application to Nunavut jobs are encouraged to contact Pilimmaksaivik, the Federal Centre of Excellence on Inuit Employment.
