More than 63 nationalities are represented at Michelin Canada’s 10 sites. This rich diversity, paired with Canada’s vibrant history and dynamic culture, means that DE&I efforts should be unique to the needs of employees based there. Michelin Canada took its first step toward defining DE&I initiatives with an Employment Equity Survey to gain a better understanding of the different backgrounds, perspectives and interests of employees. Based on insights from this survey, Michelin Canada’s DE&I Board and two regional councils identified DE&I actions to be undertaken in 2023.
• Participating for the first time in Pride parades and marches in Halifax, Bridgewater and the Annapolis Valley
• Developing a cultural mentorship program to help new hires from different countries with cultural integration
• Exploring DE&I Awareness training for council members, managers and employees
• Participating as a corporate sponsor for the 2023 North American Indigenous Games to be held in Nova Scotia
