Creating Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities Initiative

This Initiative was developed to support and further promote the City of Winnipeg’s culture of inclusion where persons with disabilities are recruited and retained into positions of meaningful employment. The City of Winnipeg is committed to further promoting equality of employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.

Persons with disabilities are a diverse labour pool with valuable skills and the City of Winnipeg strives to be a leader in the recruitment and retention of persons with disabilities. Learn more about the Creating Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities Initiative.

LGBTTQ Inclusivity

The City of Winnipeg engages in various forms of outreach, programming and service delivery to ensure that we create a welcoming and inclusive environment for members of the LGBTTQ community.

In 2012, the City became a Regional Partner of Pride at Work Canada. This partnership reflects its commitment to inclusion and diversity and to respecting all employees, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, or sexual orientation.

Annually, the City of Winnipeg hosts the raising of the Pride Flag Ceremony at City Hall to kick off the Pride Winnipeg Festival. City departments also raise the Pride flag at main offices to celebrate the Pride Winnipeg Festival each year.

Self-Declaration and Employment Equity

Organizational policies, practices and initiatives are aimed at increasing employment representation of historically disadvantaged groups across the organization.

Employment equity encompasses positive remedies for discrimination in the workplace through actions that assist in correcting past discriminatory practices against the four groups in Canada that have been identified as having faced arbitrary and unfair employment barriers.

If you belong to one of these designated groups, we encourage you to self-declare when applying to the City of Winnipeg:

  • Women
  • Indigenous People (First Nation - includes Status, Treaty or Non-Status, Metis and Inuit)
  • Visible Minorities (includes persons (other than Indigenous) who are non-white in colour/ethnicity regardless of place of birth, e.g. Chinese, Filipino, Black, Asian, Latin American, other, etc.)
  • Persons with a Disability (a visible or non-visible long-term or recurring physical, mental, psychiatric, sensory or learning impairment, which limits the quantity or type of work you can do in the workplace or which may be perceived as a limitation.)

You can self-declare by:

  • Stating it on your cover letter/resume or by completing a voluntary declaration on the application form (either hard copy or online).

Employment equity focuses on these objectives:

  • Ensures that the four designated groups are fairly represented throughout the workplace
  • Identifies and eliminates discriminatory barriers in the workplace
  • Prevents future discrimination and remedies the effects of past discrimination in employment
