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.
