What is the Federal Community Employment Benefits Initiative?


The Canada Community Employment Benefits (CEB) initiative provides a framework for establishing project targets and reporting on employment and/or procurement for at least three of the groups targeted by the initiative: apprentices; Indigenous peoples; women; persons with disabilities; veterans; youth; recent immigrants; and small-sized, medium-sized and social enterprises.

The initiative is designed to allow for flexibility for provinces and territories to identify appropriate targets for the achievement of CEB by larger projects receiving funding under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. Information collected on these projects will be made public.
