The 1991 Broadcasting Act states that the programming provided by the CBC/Radio-Canada should among others "be predominantly and distinctly Canadian" and should "reflect the multicultural and multiracial nature of Canada.
In support of this, the Corporation’s stated core values include public service, journalistic excellence, leadership and teamwork in which many people with diverse talents and perspectives work together to accomplish goals. The notion of diversity is integral to both the Corporation’s mission and vision.
CBC/Radio-Canada values the contributions of all employees, and is committed to employment equity and diversity. We believe that individuals should have access to employment opportunities based on their ability and are committed to providing an environment that is supportive of individual needs and differences.
