In order to achieve this representative workforce, preference may be given to candidates who, at the time of application, indicate that they are belonging to one of the following Employment Equity groups (self-declaration): Indigenous peoples, Women, Visible Minorities and Persons with Disabilities.

At Statistics Canada we recognize that a diverse and inclusive workplace that can harness the diverse backgrounds, talents and perspectives of its employees is essential to building a better, more productive and more innovative Canada.
