If you have any questions regarding this position or applying for the position, please reach out and email us at: We want to support all applicants during this process.


We are proud of the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives that Indigenous employees bring to our workplace so we encourage all indigenous candidates to self identify during the application process. We know that sometimes this can be a complicated, emotional issue based on historical events. We understand that ticking a box can be viewed as a colonial way of collecting data. Please also do not feel that you are required to self-identify. If you are comfortable self-identifying in the application process, please do. Self-identifying doesn’t mean you need to disclose any other personal information about your ancestry or family. We want to celebrate your Indigenous roots and our success in supporting Indigenous employees.
