DCC's priorities towards people reflect our commitments to increasing Indigenous representation in our workforce and to providing our employees with opportunities to grow their skills and knowledge.

We are emphasizing building relationships with Indigenous communities, Friendship centres, Indigenous employment agencies and Indigenous resource centres at Canadian post-secondary institutions, to raise awareness of employment opportunities with DCC.

National Indigenous Youth Work Experience Program

DCC’s National Indigenous Youth Work Experience Program offers young Indigenous people meaningful work experiences at DCC offices and sites across the country. Successful candidates will be supervised and mentored in a high-performing environment offering valuable office and field experience.

In 2022-23, DCC hired 14 Indigenous students across the country.

Defence Construction Canada Indspire Bursary

In 2022, DCC partnered with Indspire, a national Indigenous registered charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people, to offer two $2500 bursaries for Indigenous students in engineering, planning and environmental sciences at any accredited post-secondary institute.

We awarded the first of these two annual bursaries in the fall of 2022.

At DCC we are making sure that employees have opportunities to gain knowledge about Indigenous cultures and histories, and to build intercultural competencies. All DCC employees complete NVision's The Path: Your Journey Through Indigenous Canada within 12 months of hiring.
