The mandate of the employer is to deliver child and family services from a culturally appropriate Indigenous perspective that includes knowledge of the language, customs, traditions, land base, protocols, beliefs, and values of Treaty 8 people. For these reasons, as well as the historical disadvantages experienced by the Indigenous workforce, Treaty 8 Urban Child and Family Services may engage in preferential hiring of qualified candidates who are persons of Indigenous ancestry, particularly those with a connection to the Treaty 8 territory.
