Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Building a successful workforce for the future requires a strong commitment to equity and diversity.

Learn about Employment Equity at the City of Winnipeg and our Diversity Commitment.

LGBTTQ Inclusivity

The City of Winnipeg engages in various forms of outreach, programming and service delivery to ensure that we create a welcoming and inclusive environment for members of the LGBTTQ community.

In 2012, the City became a Regional Partner of Pride at Work Canada. This partnership reflects its commitment to inclusion and diversity and to respecting all employees, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, or sexual orientation.

Annually, the City of Winnipeg hosts the raising of the Pride Flag Ceremony at City Hall to kick off the Pride Winnipeg Festival. City departments also raise the Pride flag at main offices to celebrate the Pride Winnipeg Festival each year.

Self-Declaration and Employment Equity

Organizational policies, practices and initiatives are aimed at increasing employment representation of historically disadvantaged groups across the organization.

Employment equity encompasses positive remedies for discrimination in the workplace through actions that assist in correcting past discriminatory practices against the four groups in Canada that have been identified as having faced arbitrary and unfair employment barriers.

If you belong to one of these designated groups, we encourage you to self-declare when applying to the City of Winnipeg:

  • Women
  • Indigenous People - An Indigenous person is a member of First Nation, Métis, or Inuit. First Nation includes status, treaty, or registered, as well as non-registered people.
  • Visible Minorities - A person in a Visible Minority group in Canada is someone, other than an Indigenous person, who is non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour, regardless of their place of birth.
  • Persons with a Disability - A Person with a Disability includes individuals who have a long-term or recurring physical, mental, psychiatric, sensory, or learning impairment which may limit certain kinds of activity or could be perceived as a limitation. These include visible and non-visible disabilities.

You can self-declare by:

  • Stating it on your cover letter/resume or by completing a voluntary declaration on the application form (either hard copy or online).

Employment equity focuses on these objectives:

  • Ensures that the four designated groups are fairly represented throughout the workplace
  • Identifies and eliminates discriminatory barriers in the workplace
  • Prevents future discrimination and remedies the effects of past discrimination in employment
