Our people come from every corner of Canada and beyond. They are the face of our country, in all its diversity. In its mandate, CBC/Radio-Canada makes diversity one of its priorities, which means reflecting Canada and its regions, as well as the country’s multicultural and multiracial nature.
Diversity encompasses a wide range of visible and invisible attributes that are integral to the theme of inclusion. Canada’s population is made up of a wealth of cultures, linguistic and ethno-cultural communities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, religions and people with different abilities. Each of us contributes to the collective success.
CBC/Radio-Canada is committed to reflecting the country’s diversity through its programming. All Canadians need to be able to recognize themselves on-air and know that its programs reflect the changing face of Canada on all platforms.
The Corporation is also focused on attracting a diversified talent pool, thus ensuring that diversity is incorporated into the way it recruits and develops its workforce. Through this commitment, the Corporation can leverage our society’s similarities and differences as it strives to become a more open, inclusive and progressive organization.
"At CBC, it is understood that in order to be relevant and meaningful to all Canadians, we need to ensure that we are reflecting all the richness and diversity this country has to offer. Whether it’s in the shows we produce, the stories we tell, the people who work with us, or the personal connections we make in communities across the country - this is our goal. As your public broadcaster, inclusion and diversity are important ingredients to a culture and environment that drives innovative, creative and engaging programming - key to the CBC and to Canadians."— Kim Clark, Director, Inclusion and Diversity CBC
