As part of its priority to advance reconciliation and renew Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) are committed to hiring more Indigenous peoples into their workforce. Better representation within the public service of Canada’s fastest-growing demographic group will lead to more innovative and inclusive solutions to today’s complex challenges. Ultimately, this will improve government services for Canadians.

Indigenous peoples are therefore encouraged to apply to this inventory and self-identify. As defined in the Canadian Constitution, an Indigenous person is a North American Indian or a member of a First Nation, Métis or Inuit; North American Indians or members of a First Nation include treaty, status or registered Indians, as well as non-status and non-registered Indians. As part of the overall application verification process, Indigenous affiliation will be verified at the time of the appointment.

Please note that Aboriginal and Indigenous are used interchangeably in the context of the Employment Equity Act.

In order to self-declare as an Indigenous person, please ensure to indicate this by checking off the appropriate box within the online application as part of the Employment Equity section in your job application.
