Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity is Canada’s strength. Our priority is to reflect our nation in the products we sell, the people we hire, and the culture we create. We are proud to be one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers for ten years running.

Inclusion Council and committees
Our Inclusion Council and hundreds of supporting committee members unite around four groups, which create spaces for connection and support, and advance inclusion through events and activities.
Through important multicultural and diversity dates, we teach one another about our differences. This helps build a culture of inclusion. Some of the dates we mark include:
Black History Month
International Women's Day
National Indigenous Peoples Day and History Month
Transgender Day of Remembrance
Orange Shirt Day
National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Gender pay equity
We strive for gender pay equity and monitor it across our organization, by level, and with like-for-like positions. Our pay decision tool helps us make objective, fair and equitable pay decisions. Each year, we complete detailed reviews and create action plans, where needed.
We invite candidates and colleagues to voluntarily and confidentially self-identify. This helps us determine where underrepresentation exists and to measure our progress. By the end of 2024, our goals are to have:
Women in 40% of executive positions and 43% of management positions
Racialized members in 25% of executive positions and 30% of management positions
We set similar goals for our Board of Directors:
Maintain at least 40% women directors
Achieve 25% racialized member directors by the end of 2024
Inclusive hiring and opportunities
We are focused on removing biases, and we educate managers on inclusive hiring and development practices. We also monitor representation in our talent management programs. We have relationships and connections through community organizations, including Equitek, Black Professionals in Tech Network, Toronto Regional Immigration Council, Ascend Canada, Pride at Work, Women’s Executive Network, Giant Steps and Ready Willing and Able.
We conduct culture, diversity, equity and inclusion training with all colleagues, including specific training sessions for leaders on their role in creating a culture of inclusion.
