Increasing opportunities for Aboriginal people in the workplace

How to increase opportunities for Indigenous people in the workplace? Deloitte's Dialogue on diversity report answers the question.

Indigenous people make up the fastest-growing segment of Canada’s labour force. Meanwhile, Canadian companies are having trouble filling job vacancies. So why the disconnect between these two groups? And what can we do to increase opportunities for Indigenous people in the workplace? Deloitte's team posed these questions to a variety of stakeholders as part of their third annual “Dialogue on diversity” roundtables held across the country. They listened and learned from passionate, proactive speakers who shared success stories and best practices, as well as their perspectives on the need for:

  • a long-term commitment to building relationships
  • greater collaboration
  • education
  • accommodation
  • cultural understanding

Deloitte's team has compiled all the insights, ideas and recommendations of these discussions in their third annual Dialogue on diversity report.
