Indigenous recruitment

We are committed to creating a diverse workforce and to hiring candidates with unique experiences and voices. As the Agency works towards becoming a leading organization that engages, respects, cooperates and partners with Indigenous Peoples, we are looking to employ more Indigenous border services officers and non-uniformed Indigenous employees.

The CBSA recognizes the unique perspectives that Indigenous employees bring to the Agency. Efforts are underway to increase the knowledge and understanding that all employees have of Indigenous history and culture, with an emphasis on how that knowledge can be applied in client service and in employee relationships.
