What is Employment Equity?
Employment Equity aims to address employment
disadvantages historically experienced by women,
Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and
members of visible minorities.
Employment Equity is measured by the equitable
representation, distribution and retention of these
groups of persons at every level of the workforce.
Employment Equity Act
The Employment Equity Act requires employers to
provide equal opportunities and removes barriers to
employment to ensure all groups of people are
represented in the workforce.
The objective is to achieve equality in the workplace
so that no person is denied employment opportunities
or benefits for reasons unrelated to their abilities.
The Act emphasizes fair treatment and the
implementation of positive steps to achieve
a representative workforce.
