Employment Equity

The CRA and You - The Perfect Fit

The CRA strives to have a workforce that reflects Canada's diverse population and to provide equal opportunities for advancement based on employees' competencies and knowledge.

The CRA follows the rules set out in the Employment Equity Act (Department of Justice Canada Web site).

The Act has two key purposes:

  • to achieve equality in the workplace
  • to remove employment barriers for members of the four designated Employment Equity (EE) groups:
    • Aboriginal Peoples
    • Visible Minorities
    • Persons with Disabilities, and
    • Women.

Through active leadership and a supportive environment, the CRA has made Employment Equity an essential part of our human resources practices and the way we do business. To find out more about Employment Equity in the CRA, read our annual CRA Employment Equity Report*.
