A Diverse Workforce

  • Cameco is committed to creating and maintaining a welcoming, inclusive, barrier-free work environment which allows all employees to perform their jobs at an optimal level.
  • Achieving this desired environment depends upon mutual respect, creative problem solving and co-operation.
  • We have been recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers since 2010.

Workplace inclusion

Members of a diverse workforce bring new ideas, perspectives, experiences and expertise to the company. This allows Cameco to continue to innovate, manage change, and grow as a respected industry leader and employer of choice. A diverse workforce helps Cameco to succeed.

As a federally regulated company, Cameco complies with the federal Employment Equity Act by removing barriers that may make it difficult for some people to fully participate in the workforce, including those from the following four equity groups as defined in The Act:

  • women in under-represented roles
  • people with disabilities
  • Aboriginal Peoples
  • members of visible minority groups

We support a diverse workforce by:

  • implementing fair hiring practices
  • recruiting and retaining qualified candidates from all four equity groups
  • maintaining a corporate culture that fosters excellence, innovation, employee satisfaction and engagement by respecting individual differences and encouraging a diversity of views

Cameco hires on merit, based on an applicant's qualifications and experience. Qualified equity group members are encouraged to apply for Cameco positions, and to declare their designated equity status so that we can monitor our progress towards a more representative workforce. See Employment Equity-Additional Information for more details.
