The National Citizens Alliance believes employment practices should be based upon equal opportunity. However, as a party we have issue with affirmative action, which we view as a form of discrimination.
Affirmative action is an attempt to make up for apparent past discrimination in employment practices by favouring the beneficiaries of affirmative action, whether or not the beneficiaries have actually faced discrimination in employment opportunities.
Therefore, the National Citizens Alliance supports
● amendment of the Employment Equity Act (1986) to be more merit based by implementation of a merit based approach to all federal government employment
● establish equal opportunity of all Canadian citizens for employment in the federal government
