globe covered in flags

When reviewing job candidate profiles, it is important to assess all qualifications and prior experience regardless of where it is obtained. This gives you the opportunity to select from a wider pool of diverse talent. As of July 15, 2013 requiring “Canadian experience” could violate the Ontario Human Rights Code, according to the new Ontario Human Rights Commission policy.

In this webinar, you will hear from Barbara Hall, Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission on the new policy. Ratna Omidvar, President of Maytree, will moderate a discussion with two employers – the international law firm Denton’s and the Ottawa based IT company Pythian on how they assess the qualifications and competencies of new employees. We will provide practical examples on how you can implement effective hiring practices that discounts “Canadian experience”.

Moderator: Ratna Omidvar, President, Maytree

Presenter: Barbara Hall, Chief Commissioner, Ontario Human Rights Commission

Panelists:
Michael Schafler, Partner, Dentons
