Aboriginal Employment

Helping to create employment opportunities for Aboriginal people is one of the ways Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) fulfills its mandate to improve the quality of life of Aboriginal peoples and their communities. INAC makes it easier for employers to access qualified Aboriginal candidates. This in turn, increases Aboriginal employment opportunities, helps employers and helps the Canadian economy in general.

INAC's Aboriginal Workforce Participation Initiative educates employers about the advantages of hiring Aboriginal employees, and helps them with the process. In addition, the Department has committed to fifty per cent Aboriginal Hiring Strategy to ensure strong Aboriginal representation in our workforce.
