Understanding the Value, Challenges, and Opportunities of Engaging Métis, Inuit, and First Nations Workers (2012)

Report

The authors of this report point out that Canada’s Aboriginal population is the fastest growing segment of the country’s population and has a key role to play in helping Canada meet its future labour market needs. However, the labour market participation of the Aboriginal population lags behind that of the non-Aboriginal population.

While many Canadian businesses would like to engage with Aboriginal workers, they face challenges in attracting, hiring, and retaining Aboriginal workers.

The authors present a number of strategies that can help the situation, including improvements in the educational outcomes of the Aboriginal population; promotion of better understanding of the Aboriginal population among the non-Aboriginal population; simplification of points of contact between Aboriginal organizations and employers; and increased opportunities for the sharing of best practices among Aboriginal employment organizations.

The report was published by the Conference Board of Canada, a not-for-profit organization that researches and analyzes economic trends and public policy issues.
