Importantly, we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce as a key step toward eliminating barriers to access and equity. Committed to living our values, we encourage individuals who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, otherwise-abled, and other underrepresented identities, to apply to join our team. It is critically important that we reflect the diverse communities across Canada that we serve. All applications will receive consideration.
