Saskatchewan vs. Federal Programs

The Saskatchewan approach to equity is different from the federal model. The SHRC program is voluntary, permissive and flexible, enabling partners to determine the shape of their equity plans and establish their own procedures, goals, and timetables. The program is grounded in just one section of The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code, section 47 (see Legal Framework). In contrast, the federal program is mandatory and the federal Employment Equity Act and Regulations contain detailed definitions, requirements and procedures.
