Improving Your Assessment and Hiring of Candidates

Requiring “Canadian experience” could violate the Ontario Human Rights Code according to the new Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) policy.

Basing hiring and accreditation decisions on whether a person has “Canadian experience” is not a reliable way to assess a person’s skills or abilities. Employers and regulatory bodies should ask about all of the candidates relevant trade, professional or other qualifications and prior experience regardless of where they obtained it from.

Learn about the new Ontario Human Rights Commission policy on removing “Canadian experience” barrier and hear from two employers on how they assess the qualifications and competencies of new employees in our September 19, 2013 webinar.

In part two of this series, Cherie Robertson, Senior Policy Analyst at OHRC describes best practices employers and regulatory bodies can use to improve their assessment and hiring of candidates.
