Employee classification groups

To fulfill provincial reporting requirements, UVic collects employment equity data through the Employment Equity Survey. The survey – which is sent to all new employees regardless of employment status – allows UVic employees to self-identify as a member of one or more of Canada’s four protected groups:

  1. Women (expressed as W within the tables below)
  2. Indigenous peoples (expressed as IP within the tables below)
  3. Persons with disabilities (expressed as PWD within the tables below)
  4. Visible minorities (expressed as VM within the tables below)

N: Group (N) expresses the total number of employees who responded to the survey in a given employment group. Given the survey is voluntary, the following data represent only survey respondents. Currently, our response rate is roughly 85%. 

Date: December 15th, 2022.

Note: A dash (—) indicates the removal of a data point to maintain confidentiality and anonymity. This applies to numbers < 5, depending on the total number in the corresponding row.
