We are building a Canada where Indigenous and barriered jobseekers have the same employment opportunities as all other Canadians.
Our Children’s Medicine connects Indigenous and barriered jobseekers, Canadian businesses and nonprofit agencies to eliminate barriers to employment. Using HigherMe’s job platform, jobseekers create online profile that bypasses the paper resume and allows them to highlight skills gained from lived experience rather than work experience. Applications involve answering a multiple choice questionnaire and recording an optional short video. HigherMe’s proprietary algorithm assigns a Match Score to the profiles, alerting HR managers of the suitability of a candidate for a certain role.
