Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

At CMHC,  diversity, equity and inclusion guide everything we do – both internally and externally: 

  • It’s our responsibility to fight racism and discrimination against Indigenous, Black, racialized,  2SLGBTQIA+ and groups that have been placed in marginalized situations.  We're taking concrete actions to eliminate racism and embed equity into our culture, programs, and policies so that they reflect the lived experiences of everyone living in Canada.  
  • We live, work and play on the traditional territories of Canada’s Indigenous peoples. CMHC is committed to reconciliation and building meaningful partnerships with Indigenous communities to develop housing solutions.
  • As part of our commitment to advancing reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, we're taking steps to achieve Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification.  PAR-certified companies meet criteria for leadership, employment equity, business development with Indigenous-owned businesses and community relationships that support Indigenous communities.  
  • We are proud to serve people living in Canada in both official languages and support our employees’ efforts in pursuing bilingualism through in-house language training. 
  • We are committed to employment equity and actively encourage applications from:
    • women
    • Indigenous Peoples
    • persons with disabilities and of all abilities
    • veterans
    • persons of all races, ethnicities and religions
    • persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions
