Federal Government Launches Employment Equity Tool on Workforce Data
Date: February 7, 2024
On February 2, 2024, the federal government launched a new website, Equi’Vision. It is an employment equity tool which the government states provides “user-friendly, easily comparable data on workforce representation rates and the pay gaps” experienced by women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities. These groups are the designated groups under the Employment Equity Act (Act).
The data in Equi’Vision is collected from the information submitted by federally regulated employers with 100 or more employees to the Labour Program, as part of their reporting obligations under the Act. No individual employee information is reported or disclosed.
