Employment equity

In 1998, the University of New Brunswick signed a certificate of commitment under the Federal Contractors Program to implement employment equity at the university.

In signing the certificate of commitment, the university made a special commitment to help advance specific groups which, in the past, have been disadvantaged in employment. These groups are:

  • women
  • Indigenous people
  • persons with disabilities
  • members of visible minorities

UNB is taking special measures to increase the representation of these groups where there are inequities in its workforce. One of the ways we are monitoring the success of these measures is by collecting relevant data.

To assist us, we request that applicants for employment opportunities at the University of New Brunswick complete a confidential voluntary self-identification form.
