Current Selection Processes

We know that our country is stronger, and our government and business more effective, when decision-makers reflect Canada’s diversity. Moving forward, the Government of Canada will use an appointment process that is transparent and merit-based, strives for gender parity, and ensures that Indigenous Canadians and minority groups are properly represented in positions of leadership. We will continue to search for Canadians who reflect the values that we all embrace inclusion, honesty, fiscal prudence, and generosity of spirit. Together, we will build a government and business sector as diverse as Canada.
