Given this preference and that this is a high volume hiring process, applications from non-Canadian citizens will not be accepted at this time.

As a result, it promotes employment equity and encourages candidates to indicate voluntarily on their application if they are a woman, an Aboriginal person, a person with a disability or a member of a visible minority group.
