Employment equity

OFI is committed to a fair hiring process and employment equity practices that are consistent with Canada’s Employment Equity Act. An external company assists with recruitment and ensures a diverse community is informed of job openings. OFI identifies and tracks the progress of applications from individuals within designated groups. Employment equity targets are monitored and if OFI hiring does not meet expectations, adjustments to the recruitment and hiring process are made. This may result in broader and/or more targeted advertising and identifying candidates to apply and/or asking them to suggest appropriate candidates.
