Canada Post seeks to achieve a diverse workforce with representation from all employment equity groups including women, members of visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities. Canada Post is committed to building an inclusive workplace by identifying and eliminating employment barriers. Our goal is to achieve and maintain a representative workforce that reflects the Canadian labour market.
The Board of Directors monitors progress in this area. The Board receives annual reports on the Corporation's compliance with all elements of the Equality in Employment policy and seeks additional information addressing any areas it feels require increased focus.
Canada Post also recognizes the relationship between gender diversity and corporate performance. As a Crown Corporation, Canada Post's board members are appointed by the Governor in Council on the recommendation of our Minister. The Board's Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee works closely with the Minister's office to provide the skills and attributes needed by the Board and also address its commitment to diversity.
Since 2016, the Canada Post Corporation and its Board of Directors are members of the 30% Club, a voluntary group of Chairs and Chief Executive Officers that publicly commit to increasing the number of women on boards and acknowledge the positive influence of such an increase. Canada Post's Board of Directors currently has 30% female members, including the Chair.
