Employment equity: Count yourself in!

The Government of Canada hires people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes the public service even more talented, inclusive and diverse. Self-declaration is voluntary, but by self-declaring as a member of one of the 4 employment equity groups, you’ll be considered for job opportunities where belonging to one of these groups is a requirement. Your information will be kept confidential.

Join us in building an accessible, inclusive and barrier-free public service. Learn more about employment equity and how the Public Service Commission of Canada is building a representative public service.
