Depends on what they lump into that category, but given that these designated groups are dedicated Human Resources Development and Skills Canada I would consult with how they define these employment equity groups. However, I dont think they consider being a cowboy a VM.
I know there quite a few plans in place for this employee segment, especially from the standpoint of an employee resource group, like CIBC Pride, which I take is one. Being involved in these groups are great for networking, mentoring and taking charge of your career.btw I'm not refering to myself but I am part of the cibc Pride network
LGBTQ is not a visible minority. however any employer can choose to include it as a non-visible minority when/if they are including minority status in their hiring practices.I've totally applied and checked off "LGBTIQQ." But again, in this case obviously it was beneficial as they're trying to hire visible minorities through equity initiatives.
Or when applying for jobs that want to hire visible minorities through specific funding.LGBTQ is not a visible minority. however any employer can choose to include it as a non-visible minority when/if they are including minority status in their hiring practices.
I have no idea what you mean when you refer to "protection."Wait, Mofo, wouldn't you have visible minority protection anyway? I recall you mentioning that you're Chinese-Canadian somewhere sometime on Tribe.
That answer to that is "yes, it can even though it's wrong."
