Committed to the Aboriginal Community

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) is dedicated to providing financial services to North American Indian (status or non-status), Inuit and Metis people through our Aboriginal Banking Team. Join this team of experts and you’ll bring the new skills and training we provide to help meet the changing and diverse needs of the people in your community.

CIBC takes an active role in the community at both a national and local level. We have been a proud supporter of the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation (NAAF) since 1993.

Our community involvement means we are better able to understand the needs of the Aboriginal community. It allows us to find the right solutions for your banking needs. It helps us to find talented and dedicated people like you to develop your skills and grow your career with us at CIBC.

A Career for You, Skills for Your Community

Aboriginal employees have established themselves throughout CIBC in a wide variety of departments and applications, including Personal Banking Representatives, Technical Services Developers, Human Resources Consultants and more.

The CIBC Career Access Program (CCAP) (https://www.cibc.com/ca/inside-cibc/careers/equity-and-diversity/career-access.html) is a unique program designed to help Aboriginal people find employment and build a career at CIBC.

CIBC Career Access Program

This program is designed to promote opportunities in the workforce for people of Aboriginal heritage and people with disabilities. It involves two specific activities:

  1. Outreach in the community to attract appropriately qualified job applicants

  2. Support of applicants throughout the hiring process

Outreach involves liaising with many external organizations that serve people with disabilities and Aboriginal peoples, advertising job vacancies and job readiness training opportunities. It also involves CIBC’s participation in career fairs at community-based events, where we encourage qualified candidates to apply.

The CIBC Career Access Program (CCAP) consists of three distinct pathways to provide the support that best suits your unique skills and experience:

  1. Direct-Hire Support

  2. Skills Training

  3. Student Support

How to Request Support

While applying for support through CCAP is voluntary, an initial eligibility requirement is that people entering into this program be of Aboriginal descent, a person with a disability, or both. Before requesting support, please use the definitions below to ensure you belong to one or both of these groups.

Aboriginal Peoples are defined as persons who are North American Indian (Status or Non-Status), Inuit or Métis.

Persons with disabilities are individuals with long-term or recurring physical, mental, sensory, psychiatric or learning impairments that either they or potential employers view as being a disadvantage in gaining or maintaining employment.

If you meet the above criteria:

  1. Create an online profile

  2. Use this profile to apply to positions that match your skills and experiences

As a personal preference, you have the option to self-identify if you are a member of one or more of the designated groups, based on the Employment Equity Act definitions.

Applications will only be accepted through the above method.

Any other general inquiries can be directed to the CCAP mailbox at ccap@cibc.com.
