There are no current opportunities with Cando
Cando has signed up for the 50-30 challenge! Canada's 50 – 30 Challenge asks firms to make two aspirational commitments to increase diversity on Boards and in senior management over time, and report on their progress. Participating companies, organizations, and not-for-profits agree to voluntarily take action towards achieving meaningful and substantive improvements in supporting diversity and inclusion within their organization, as outlined in the Challenge. The Government is looking to partner with these organizations in their efforts, and is examining supports for participating organizations to help them achieve these goals.

Last year was tough for everyone, but we kept pushing to ensure economic security for all women in Canada. We’ve seen some incredible successes, including the launch of new programs and expanding the scope of our work to reach more communities across the country. As we look ahead to the new year, we're excited to continue building on these successes, and to take on new challenges. We're looking forward to new opportunities, new partnerships, and new ways of working together to make a real difference in the lives of women across Canada.
