Workplace Opportunities – Barriers to Employment

February 6, 2022

The Federation of Black Canadians (FBC) is partnering with the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) to increase the representation of members of the Black community in all levels of employment in the banking and financial sectors by showcasing the barriers present within federally regulated financial institutions. Furthermore, this project will work with employers to showcase current and future employment opportunities for Black based audiences to support community awareness.

The project’s specific objectives are to:

  • Create an online toolkit that shares best practice polices, testimonials, and statistics about workplace diversity with employers in the finance sector;
  • Develop an ongoing digital campaign that highlights the various issues and opportunities surrounding employment barriers to create awareness; and
  • Hold three national forums to engage members of the Black community and leaders in federally regulated financial institutions.

This project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Labour Funding Program –  Workplace Opportunities
