A Diverse and Inclusive Workplace

CMHC is consistently recognized as one of “Canada’s Best Diversity Employers” by Canada’s Top 100 Employers and the Globe and Mail. We work hard to build a vibrant and inclusive workplace that reflects the broad population we serve.

We encourage the learning and use of both official languages in the workplace. We’re also committed to employment equity and actively encourage application from women, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities and visible minorities.
