Diversity, Inclusion, Accessibility and Anti-Racism
The OPS is an innovative, responsive, and accountable public service that works hard to be diverse, anti-racist, inclusive, merit-based, and equitable. Diversifying leadership teams is a top OPS priority, with the goal to achieve parity with the Ontario labour force by 2025 for the most underrepresented groups (Indigenous, racialized and persons with disabilities) in leadership positions. To advance this goal, the OPS is collecting socio-demographic information that will help to address potential barriers and achieve equity in hiring.

You are invited to complete the voluntary survey and contribute to building a more diverse, inclusive and accessible OPS. If you have completed the survey since September 28th, 2020, you do not need to complete it again unless you would like to change your responses or consent.

An effective leader in the Ontario Public Service (OPS) is responsible, innovative and collaborative. A responsible leader demonstrates authenticity, accountability and courage in how they interact with others. An innovative leader leads with common purpose, embraces positive disruption, and has a future mindset. A collaborative leader focuses on helping others to grow, drives people-centred outcomes and promotes an environment of inclusivity; this leader works to confront bias and systemic barriers while understanding the importance of creating a more diverse and accessible workplace.
