Distribution of public service of Canada employees by designated sub-group and salary range - Indigenous peoples

On this page

Representation data for Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities is based on voluntary self-identification. Public servants can choose whether or not to self identify; it is not mandatory. This means that the data may not provide an accurate reflection of the total number of public servants in each employment equity group.

About the data

When reading the tables below, the following information applies:

  • Source: Pay System as of March 31st of each year and Employment Equity Data Bank (EEDB).
  • Internal representation for Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities is based on those who have voluntarily chosen to self-identify in one of the respective employment equity groups, while sex information is taken from the pay system.
  • The data in these tables cover employees identified for the purpose of employment equity in the Regulations to the Employment Equity Act.
  • The information includes indeterminates, terms of three months or more, and seasonal employees of organizations captured under the Financial Administration Act, Schedules I and IV (Core Public Administration).
  • Excluded from this information are:
    • employees on leave without pay,
    • terms less than three months,
    • students and casual workers,
    • Governor in Council appointees,
    • Ministers’ exempt staff,
    • federal judges and
    • deputy ministers.
  • The estimates of workforce availability are based on information from the 2016 Census of Canada and the 2017 Canadian Survey on Disability.
  • Workforce availability estimates include only Canadian citizens in those occupations in the Canadian workforce that correspond to occupations in the core public administration.
