Under the Employment Equity Act, Federally regulated employers with 100 or more employees are required to report annually on the composition of their workforce as it relates to women, visible minorities, persons with disabilities and aboriginal peoples. Employers are rated based on the composition of the employer’s workforce as it relates to the availability of members of the designated groups in the population.

At Halifax International Airport Authority, it is critical for success to remove barriers and promote the inclusion of all employees, including those from equity-seeking groups. We recognize that the act of identifying can be uncomfortable for a variety of reasons, but as each of the perspectives below show us, self-identification is a necessary and important step to creating a robust and inclusive workforce. 

Please take a few minutes to complete this confidential survey.

Your participation is greatly appreciated!
