To see Diversity actualized in the Canadian workforce.
The mission of the Diversity Development Network of Canada (DDNC) is to support the ability of various diverse groups such as youth, women, indigenous peoples, and veterans across Canada to work collaboratively with each other and with outside organizations.
The DDNC seeks to work with diverse groups to increase the reach and value for all DDNC members. By securing continuity of projects in collaboration with other stakeholders, resources can be leveraged to directly increase diverse peoples’ access, entry and advancement in Canadian industries to fill highly skilled employment gaps.
