Confidential Employment Equity Workforce Survey
Newcap must comply with the provisions of the Employment Equity Act and the Canadian Human Rights Act. The purpose of the legislation, as it relates to employment equity, is to achieve and maintain equality in the workplace so that no person is denied employment opportunities or benefits that are not related to ability.
The Employment Equity Act specifically targets four designated groups that historically have experienced barriers in employment, namely aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minorities and women.
While it is not mandatory to complete this survey, we encourage you to do so in order to assist us in meeting our employment equity objectives. If applicable, you may identify yourself in more than one of the four designated groups.
The information you supply will remain confidential and will only be used by or be disclosed to other persons within Newcap in order to carry out our obligations under the Employment Equity Act. The questionnaire can be made available to you in alternate formats: 1. Large Print, 2. Audiocassette or 3. Diskette
For the purpose of employment equity, “aboriginal peoples” means persons who are Native American Indian, Inuit, or Métis.
