Building a diverse workplace

We aspire to be a workplace where we embrace differences, celebrate curiosity and innovation. Our Blueprint for transformation asks us to reflect and take stock of what we know about our existing culture and what’s needed to move us forward.

Over the past year, we’ve made progress on several initiatives that will support our culture for years to come.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy

In March 2022, we launched our first Diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy. This strategy lays the groundwork to transform OSFI into an organization that embodies diversity, equity, and inclusion at every level, in everything we do.

Accessibility Plan 2023-2026

Launched in December 2022, our Accessibility Plan details how we’ll uphold Accessible Canada Act principles. The plan also outlines how we expect to continue to improve accessibility and offer a work environment that provides accessible technologies and products for employees and Canadians.

For a third year in a row, OSFI was selected as one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers of 2023 (English only). This award reflects the hard work of all our employees across the country. We were specifically recognized for:
