Statement on the release of the Employment Equity Task Force Report

December 11, 2023

Canada’s unions welcome the release of the report of the Government of Canada’s Employment Equity Act Review Task Force.

As advocates for fairness and equity in employment for all workers, regardless of background or identity, we look forward to delving into the details of the report, understanding the recommendations of the Task Force, and engaging in constructive dialogue with the government to ensure the effective implementation of measures that truly promote employment equity.

Canada’s unions are ready to contribute their expertise and work collaboratively with the government to ensure a meaningful modernization of the Employment Equity Act. The Canadian Labour Congress also thanks the Task Force for its work and commitment to addressing equity in employment, and we eagerly anticipate the positive impact that its recommendations will have on shaping a more inclusive and equitable Canadian workforce.
