Employment Policy
It is the ODA's policy to:

  • Employ, retain, promote, terminate and otherwise treat any and all job applicants on the basis of merit, qualifications and competence.
  • Create a favourable work environment in which all employees can enjoy equal opportunities in their employment relationship with the ODA.

This policy shall be applied without discrimination because of an individual’s race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age (18 years or more), record of offenses, marital status, family status or disability or religious affiliation, unless there exists a bona fide occupational qualification.

Employment Equity Program
The ODA has developed, and maintains, a comprehensive employment equity program covering all elements of personnel policies and practises to remove discriminatory employment barriers when and where they are found to exist, and to enable all individuals to compete for employment opportunities on an equal basis. The ODA will equalize employment opportunities and fully utilize the greater pool of human resources and skills that exist among visible minorities, women, disabled people and aboriginal people.

The purpose of employment equity is to achieve equality in the workplace so that no person shall be denied employment opportunities or benefits for reasons unrelated to ability. Employment equity means not only treating persons in the same way, but also requires special measures and the accommodation of differences.

Accessibility
The ODA is committed to fair and accessible employment practices. As required, the ODA will integrate accessibility into regular workplace processes, including recruitment, employee accommodation, and performance management and career development.
