Federal Contractors Program (FCP) Action Group

The FCP Action Group includes the offices of Human Resources and Equity, as well as appropriate representation from the Queen's community. It exists to better inform the process of developing and implementing special measures to address the gaps identified in the Queen's FCP workforce analysis for consideration by senior officers of the University. It is responsible to the Queen's community through the Council on Employment Equity.

FCP Action Group Mandate

The mandate of the FCP Action Group is to address gaps in Queen's compliance with the FCP requirements and responsibilities by developing recruitment and employment strategies to improve the University's ability to attract, retain, develop, and reward highly qualified and talented employees from the four designated groups.

In order to achieve and maintain a representative workforce, the responsibilities of the FCP Action Group include:

  1. To strategize around actionable changes to human resources practices and systems to eliminate barriers to the hiring, selection, promotion and training of designated group members.
  2. To ensure the implementation of special measures and actions to support the achievement of a representative workforce.
  3. To develop initiatives that would create a favourable work climate to support the successful inclusion and retention of members of the designated groups.
  4. To link with monitoring bodies such as the Equity Office and the Council on Employment Equity.

The FCP Action Group should include members representing:

  • The Equity Office
  • Human Resources
  • The Council on Employment Equity

The Equity Office may work with an FCP Advisory Board which should include members representing the five equity seeking groups. (Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, women, members of visible minorities/racialized groups and members of the LGTBQ communities)
