Leveraging Opportunities: Magnet introduces diversity declaration for businesses


Tune in to our Supplier Diversity webinar with the Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council and WEConnect International

Living in Canada, diversity is all around us! At Magnet, diversity is a vital part of the work we do and we believe in highlighting what makes each business unique to give them a competitive edge. Magnet is proud to introduce the Diversity Declaration for Magnet Export Business Portal accounts.

The Diversity Declaration, Magnet’s newest functionality, allows organizations that create accounts through the Magnet Export Business Portal to identify their business as 50% or more owned and managed by an individual or individuals belonging to a specific diversity group. The diversity groups for diversity declarations are: Immigrants, Indigenous, LBGTQ*, persons with disabilities, veterans, visible minorities, and/or women.
