Count yourself in! Self-declare as an Indigenous person when you apply

The Government of Canada is committed to building a workforce that is representative of Canada’s population.

Some public service jobs are only open to Indigenous people, and to be considered for these opportunities, you need to self-declare when you apply. 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’re selected for a position, you may be asked to sign the Affirmation of Aboriginal Affiliation Form if it’s required for the staffing process.

“Indigenous peoples” and “Aboriginal peoples” refer to people who are North American Indian or members of a First Nation, Métis or Inuit. North American Indians or members of a First Nation include treaty, status or registered Indians, as well as non-status and non-registered Indians. The term “Indigenous peoples” is used on this page, and aligns with international usage. “Aboriginal peoples” is the legislative term that appears in the Employment Equity Act and the Employment Equity Regulations.
