Vancouver Airport Authority strives for a workplace that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. We support the Employment Equity Act and take measures to ensure fair employment practices and treatment of employees across our organization.
Every year the Airport Authority reports its workforce demographics to the federal government to show how each designated group is represented.
Demographics are taken from a survey supplied to each employee to complete voluntarily in confidence. Numbers are based on employees’ self identification as a member of a designated group—namely, women, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities.
Workplace diversity initiatives include
- Supporting a committee whose members meet regularly to find ways to communicate the importance of employment equity both within the organization and beyond
- Distributing employment postings to at least 30 outreach organizations representing the designated groups
- Developing partnerships with organizations like the Greater Vancouver Business Leadership Network and the Musqueam Band
- Providing employees with career opportunities by promoting within whenever possible
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. Canadian citizens and permanent residents are given priority.
