About the video

A diverse civil service improves our capacity to innovate by bringing different ways of thinking and skills to the workplace. That's why the Government of Canada is working to encourage more diversity in its IT community.

Did you know that there is a significant gender gap in the field of IT across all industries? And the Government of Canada is not immune. Out of a total Federal Government IT population of 17,211, only 26.8% are women! Working with an enthusiastic and passionate group of students this past summer, we developed this recruiting video to help inspire youth from all backgrounds, and particularly women, to make our IT Community richer and more diverse, bringing new voices and new ideas to the table.
