Integrating Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging into Everything We Do

Advancing a culture of belonging with employees, clients and communities starts with strategy, and continues with learning, acting, refining and moving forward with a belief that we are never done.

We aim to cultivate enterprise-wide systems and cultures of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging that permeate every aspect of the business and empower all stakeholders — both internally and externally — to succeed.


Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are essential to everything we do, from empowering employees to serving clients, engaging vendors to impacting communities. Simply put, it's good for people and it's good for business.

DEIB Defined

It’s easy to say that diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are important to an organization. But what do these words really mean?


Diversity is ...

about the numbers, differences and representation – hiring more people with various backgrounds (including race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, military status), expanding our client base, focusing on emerging and underrepresented markets.


Equity is ...

about treating each person fairly and impartially. It involves ensuring all have equal opportunity to grow and progress within an organization, and actively correcting policies and procedures that create and/or perpetuate inequities.


Inclusion is ...

about valuing and celebrating differences within a workforce and ensuring no one feels excluded or out of place.


Belonging is ...

about creating an environment where all employees are empowered to be their authentic selves, use their voice and have a seat at the table to drive growth and progress.

Putting People First

From employees to clients, we strive to build lifelong personal relationships that are far more than just "business". We believe in being good people, doing a great job and doing the right thing. Because for us, it's personal.

Creating a Path for Every Individual

A company is only as great as its employees. We want all of our employees to move forward personally and professionally, now and in the future. That's why we're committed to fostering a people-centric workplace through our unique PeopleFirst program. Built by our employees, for our employees, the program gives employees numerous opportunities for education, recognition, community service, financial strength, well-being and more.

Serving the Community Around Us

Every day we make a conscious choice to take care of the communities in which we live and work. From charity drives and community service outings to other company-sponsored events, our employees donate their time and raise funds on behalf of great causes across Canada, including:

  • Autism Speaks – As part of a three-year partnership, NFP worked with the nonprofit to support those who struggle with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). NFP was a key contributor to events and to the MSSNG awareness campaign, which supports the development of the world's largest database of sequenced genomic information of people with ASDs and their families.
  • The Weekend to End All Women's Cancers – Many of our employees get involved with and raise funds for this event, which raises awareness and money for Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation and women's cancer research.
  • Joseph Brant Hospital – We’re regular supporters of the hospital’s capital campaign to raise $60 million for hospital redevelopment.
