APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT
Confidential Employment Equity Workforce Survey
Newcap must comply with the provisions of the Employment Equity Act and the Canadian Human Rights Act.
The purpose of the legislation, as it relates to employment equity, is to achieve and maintain equality in the
workplace so that no person is denied employment opportunities or benefits that are not related to ability.
The Employment Equity Act specifically targets four designated groups that historically have experienced
barriers in employment, namely aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minorities and women.
While it is not mandatory to complete this survey, we encourage you to do so in order to assist us in
meeting our employment equity objectives. If applicable, you may identify yourself in more than one of the
four designated groups.
The information you supply will remain confidential and will only be used by or be disclosed to other persons
within Newcap in order to carry out our obligations under the Employment Equity Act.
The questionnaire can be made available to you in alternate formats: 1. Large Print, 2. Audiocassette or 3. Diskette
For the purpose of employment equity, "aboriginal peoples" means persons who are Native American Indian, Inuit, or Métis.
For the purpose of employment equity, "members of visible minorities" means persons, other than aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in color.
For the purpose of employment equity, "persons with disabilities" means persons who have long-term or recurring physical, mental, sensory, psychiatric or learning impairment and who:
a) consider themselves to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment, or
b) believe that an employer or potential employer is likely to consider them to be disadvantaged in employment by reason of that impairment, and includes persons whose functional limitations owing to their impairment have been accommodated in their current job or workplace.
