Reconciliation is a key corporate commitment at CMHC. We are committed to advancing reconciliation and renewing relationships with First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples based on the recognition of rights, respect, cooperation, and partnership. We continuously evaluate our progress on reconciliation to promote comprehensive learning as per the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Call to Action 57, and meaningful actions, such as the development of programs that are accessible and effective for Indigenous People.

As part of the reconciliation process with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, the Government of Canada has asked all branches of the Federal Public Administration to take concrete steps to advance reconciliation. Our commitment to reconciliation is driven by the belief that this is a necessary process required to impact change in all areas of the company, and in the work that we do.

As part of that change in our reconciliation plan, we are creating this new role which will be responsible to establish, deploy and operate the action plan to attract, source and retain CMHC’s Indigenous talents and will serve as a Talent Acquisition Partner and subject matter expert in Indigenous recruitment by providing strategic/tactical advices, services, and support to internal stakeholders.
