Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace fosters creative thinking, innovation and problem solving, providing organizations and the country a competitive advantage.
Growth can best be achieved by ensuring people from all economic sectors, all regions and all backgrounds can take part in, and benefit from, a healthy, innovative economy.
This means creating diversified and inclusive workplaces in which individual differences and the contributions of all employees are recognized and valued.
Our inclusive growth initiative is designed to support our members in filling their talent and skills gaps, and in doing so enhance opportunities for underrepresented segments of the Canadian population to fully participate in the economy.
Mentally Healthy Workplaces
With most adults spending more of their waking hours at work than anywhere else, addressing issues of mental health at work is vitally important for all people in Canada especially employers.
Accessibility in the Workplace
One in seven Canadians currently lives with a disability. Providing universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible workplaces ensures everyone is able to participate and live to their full potential.
Our Council for Women’s Advocacy is responsible for driving meaningful action to address the barriers facing women in the workforce while ensuring the perspectives of women are integrated into national public policy development.
Enhancing Business-Indigenous Engagement
Indigenous peoples are the youngest, fastest growing demographic in Canada, ensuring they have the same opportunities to contribute to our economy is imperative.
